      I love these flowers. My sister-in-law made these in an assortment of colors and I have them in a vase in my kitchen window in place of real flowers that I will never take the time to keep alive. She is a very crafty person even though she is only 10. She has also decorated tote bags with jewels and colored glue. That's another simple craft if your kids really enjoyed the flowers.
