I have had such a wonderful day! I am filled with the Christmas spirit! First I had a young friend of mine come over and do snowflakes with me! Then, a couple came over with their precious 1 yr old baby girl….ahh..I just melted holding her. Showing her all the musical stuffed animals and snow globes. Her eyes were as big as saucers, as she was so fascinated with everything! Her visit made my year!
So back to the snowflakes…the first one is one you are already aware of… snowflakes out of coffee filters…right? This is Mariah…flattening out the coffee filter….
Fold in half, and keep folding till you have a small triangle
You then cut little triangles or circles…
this is what it looks like when your finished…
and that turns into this
The next snowflakes are awesome!!!!
What do you think of this one? Tomorrow we are adding fluorescent glitter all over it!
Here is what you need….pkg of brown paper lunch bags, and glue..we used white glue….both found at the dollar store..It’s better if you can find the white lunch bags…they were out, so we used the brown.
The second one we made came out fuller…we used 10 bags. Start by laying out one bag, front side up, and make a line of glue across the top then down…forming a T. .
Then put the next bag on top of the glued bag. Continue with glue, then bag until you reach the last bag
This was the hard part….getting Mariah to wait for the glue to dry.
When dry, cut a ‘tree top’ through all 10 bags at the top. If you can’t cut through all 10, just lift up some and cut a few at a time.
It will look like this…
I was getting excited…I forgot to take pictures of the next step. But all you do is cut 2 small triangles below the larger one you just cut out. Then you carefully spread the bags apart
….oops, still wet glue….and like a fan, you connect the ends with glue. See above how she is spreading the bags. Spread out to make a fan….
Then you will meet both sides together of the fan…to form a circle…See how glue was added to one side…
These are big stars. Cover with glitter…Big and beautiful!!!
