Flowers and Day at home from school...

So school was canceled today due to weather conditions. Our high reached 0 today so can you all say, brrrrrrr! I get cold very easy so I hate this kind of weather. With the boys home all day we needed to find some entertainment, mainly for Caleb :0) After watching a video on youtube from Kelly at walkelmol here. She put up a tutorial on making these flowers out of newspaper or coffee filters. I don't get the paper and I am going to try the coffee filters very soon. Watch her video, very easy and cool flower tutorial. In fact. they are so easy that Caleb was doing them along with me. Here are his flowers, beautiful for a 6 year old little boy if you ask me.

He did these all by himself even inking the edges. After a while he even poked the holes to put the brads through on his own also. He's getting good!

Now here are mine. I did one using two different colors and layered them but I'm not sure if you can see it that well in the picture. These are so much fun and so super easy!

Go check out Kelly's video! If you don't want to take the time to make these she also sells them. She has details in her video. Hope every one is staying warm out there!
