More Flowers for Mother's Day

This time we worked on flowers
made out of egg carton

First I cut the egg carton into two rows
(as you can see my daughter got a little
creative there with her child safety scissors
and the paint :)

after they were dry we cut them individually
with some decorative scissors
that we have for scrapbooking

and as a final step we pocked a hole with a pen
and put a pipecleaner through the flower
making a little loop on the other end of the pipecleaner
to make the center of the flower

Happy Mother's Day
