wild snowflakes

My little boys are in love with Maurice Sendack's, Where The Wild Things Are.

Brooklyn in particular has quite a soft spot for Max and his misbehaviors...

I found a torn copy of this classic at a thrift store and knew that I would end up putting it to good use.
Last night while making a plethora of paper snowflakes, the thought crossed my mind to make the boys a series of snowflakes using pages from the torn book.

Using a bit of imagination, a sharp pair of scissors and a few sprinkles of glitter,
 I created these wild snowflakes.

I just love them.

(The boys love them too)

Oh my! These are way cool. The possibilities are endless with a favorite book. I seriously think this post should be featured in a magazine. Maybe you should consider submitting it.

I thought I was being a cool mom this morning when I told my 5 year old that we would make snowflakes today after church. Now my mind is spinning because of your creativeness.

Way, way cool.

Have a sweet day.
