Getting Crafty

Here's something fun to do on a snowy day with your kids or by yourself. We are after all kids at heart.
First you need some of these...
to make SNOWFLAKES.
1--Cut the inside of the coffee
filter out. Save the "ruffle"
for another project.
2--Fold in 1/2.
3--Fold in 1/2 again.
4--Fold in 1/2 again
so it looks like a cone.
These directions are for those
of you that have a glitch in
remembering how to do this. :)
Now comes the fun! Cut out your
snowflake design. Unfold carefully
and voila--you have some pretty
snowflakes to add to your
Valentine decorations.
On these I used red and
pink markers on the edges.
Enjoy and have FUN!!!!
~Keep on Dreaming~
