Springtime Crafting

Look what we made last night!! Button Flowers. I saw this idea on a craft blog and went right away to get the other supplies we needed. I had tons of buttons that had never had a use before. Avery loved this...she made the vast majority of these, and has asked to make more today. I have favorites but it is hard to point them out. They are so easy to make, and it was nice to sit around as a family and enjoy the time together and the crafting. Try them.

Avery said Mitchell made some camo flowers. Are any of his here? The flowers look fun and easy. I'd even enjoy making them.
