A grandparent or great grandparent's birthday always calls for a handmade gift or at least it does at our house. This week we made some 'easy-peasy flowers' for Priya's great grand mother's 76th birthday.
All we needed were some mini cupcake patties, straws (the kind with a spoon on the end), paint and a ribbon. Our first step was to dip the rims of the cupcake patties in paint. Once they were dry I snipped a hole in the middle of each one and cut three straws on an angle so they could be easily threaded. In hind-sight I wouldn't cut the straws again, I would just cut the patties twice in a cross shape and thread the flat straw end through.
Priya threaded four patties onto each straw and we were done. Easy-Peasy!
