Snowflakes, Snowflakes All Around! Faux Tie Dye Coffee Filter Snowflakes & More!

There is just something about cutting snowflakes that never gets old.
No matter how old you are or how many times you've done it -
it is still exciting to create your own snowflake masterpiece.

The Lil Divas cut/made their first paper snowflakes last year
so this year I thought it would fun to change things up a little.

Faux Tie Dye Snowflakes

What You Need:
coffee filters
dot markers/bingo daubers

What To Do:

1. Fold coffee filter in half & then in half again

2. Using dot markers/bingo daubers make a pattern on the coffee filter. 



Be sure to cover both sides completely.


3. Open coffee filters & allow some drying time
this makes it easier to cut without ripping them because they won't be so wet.


4. Refold & cut your design into your snowflake.



Open & behold you awesome Tie Dye Snowflake


These look fabulous on our window!!!


Kid Friendly Food: 
Cinnamon Sugar Snowflake Tortillas

In the spirit of cutting snowflakes we also made some 
yummy, fun & easy cinnamon sugar tortillas as a quick snack.


What To Do:
1. Fold a tortilla in half & then half again.
2. Using clean scissors cut as you would a paper snowflake


3. Melt a little butter and brush onto tortillas.
4. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to liking.


5. Pop into the oven at 350 degrees for 5-7 mins.
6. Allow to cool a bit & then enjoy!


A quick, easy & fun snack that kids can help you make.

  4. What a creative idea - I never would have thought to make snowflakes out of tortillas! I made them with my 3 year old for snack time today, and my girls loved them. We also tie-dyed our coffee filters, and we'll cut them out tomorrow. Thanks for making our day more fun!
