Make Your Own Floral Initials

This cutie pie spent a week with us in June so she could attend a Ninja Warrior Training Camp!
Her classes lasted three hours each day.  Afterward, we had a wonderful time visiting our city pool, eating ice cream, going to the movies, and CRAFTING!  ;-)  She showed us a YOUTUBE video that I thought was from 5 Minute Crafts, but can't find it now.  EEK!  It's a super cute tutorial for making your own Floral Initials!

Anyway, her adoring Grandad measured and cut out cardboard, then used hot glue to form a nice sized letter "L".  Once the glue was cool, he covered it with green painters tape.  Next Handsome Husband took an old styro foam cooler and cut pieces to fill in the "L".  I didn't get any photos taken until the project was complete.

Our cutie pie chose silk flowers from my stash and I cut the stems to about 2 inches.  She had a wonderful time pressing them into the foam, pulling out some to rearrange and pressing into the foam again.  After that, washi tape was used around the sides.

We love creating a Summer memory with our Little Ninja Warrior and her letter "L" filled with flowers is now proudly displayed on top of her dresser at home!

What Summer memories have you been making?  I'll be co-hosting a Summer Fun Link Party tomorrow and would love to see all your fun shenanigans!
