    So adorble.  The little ones must love that.  Great idea for mother's day!!

    My son did these at his kindergarten class as a present for me for Mother's Day.  They also put some sort of fragrance on theirs as well (maybe a oil) but they were so cute and my son was so excited to give these to me!  Instead of a vase, they just tied a ribbon around them.

    I looked at this and no matter what I did, I couldn't get any pics to show up?!!

    I really wanted to SEE how this was done because I'll have my 4 year-old neice this coming weekend.

    Hi Jamie!

    Just thought I'd show you my neices version of your egg-carton flowers!

    She was soooo PROUD of her finished masterpiece!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    ^^ Working hard... ^^

    ^^ We're STILL cleaning up glitter!! ^^ LOL

    ^^ Heavyn and her masterpiece!! ^^

    ^^ She liked them so much, she kept them all for herself!! LOL ^^

    It was an all-day project... as you can see, she finished it after her bath that night, but it kept her occupied. I let her work at her own pace and she had a blast!!

    Thanks again!!
