I made a big check.

While the snowflakes were falling outside and 2 of 3 kids were recovering from the stomach-thing that is going around, the middle Boy and I needed a quiet project to entertain ourselves.
These snowflakes were such a big hit that Olive came out to work on them for a little bit as well.
Coffee filters and scissors are all that we needed.
I already had a warm iron so after folding the filters into halves several times, I pressed them lightly to keep them flat. That made it much easier for the 3 year old to hold.
After they were cut and unfolded I pressed them with the barely warm iron again.
The snow is very pretty (but I am so over it now). Bring on Spring!

The small sizes give me a chance to play around a bit more and try new techniques without taking up too much of my free time.
This one was a "special request" by the dad-to-be, he asked for our school colors so maroon and gold it is.
