the magic of coffee filters

One of the mamas at my kids preschool sent me a link yesterday about turning coffee filters into flowers. Since I have my kids routinely paint coffee filters through out the year and then we turn them into leaves, snowflakes and hearts just to name a few things.
 of course the idea was for plain brown or white roses
 I am not a fan of plain white or brown. Embracing color is a great way to live.
 I had my three year old happily paint the coffee filters, we let them dry on cookie racks
and low and behold, I was able to make some roses. Next time we might try some brighter colors but it actually worked!
