6 TBSP cocoa, 1/4 C butter, 1 C sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/3 C flour, 2 eggs, Cook 350 - 25 mins.



Isn't this the cutest little craft idea? It is a piece of construction paper folded and cut to look like the backdrop of a flower garden. After you make the base you then cut flowers out of construction paper and glue them to the "popped up"areas of the backdrop.
As you can probably guess, this is one frugal craft idea.
On the other hand, we soon found out that getting the thing to look like the picture is no easy task.
(The directions can be found by clicking the picture)

The boys and I followed the directions but our craft kept flipping and flopping all over the place. One of the crafts wouldn't even pop up for that fun effect.

Daxx is holding up the final display. It's a far cry from a self standing craft. I would say to affix it to a harder poster board if the kids want it to stand freely for display.
By the end of the project the boys had given up. Daxx began cutting paper willy nilly and Kole made a Van and a Rocket from what should have been their flower gardens.
That was the fun part of this craft! LOL
