Dudes Getting Their Craft On: Star Wars Snowflakes

A couple weeks ago, my sister-in-law emailed me a video link to making star wars snowflakes.  I then emailed the link to the dudes and told them to wait until their dad got home to get started (because, in my mind, dudes with exacto-knives = potential emergency trip to urgent care).  To be honest, I thought the whole idea – while very awesome – was probably going to be an exercise in frustration, likely ending in tears for Little Dude.  Turns out, my fears were baseless.  Dudes had fun creating.  No blood nor tears were shed.  And look what they made!!!IMG_4203 Darth Vader was first, because his cut-out looked easiest.IMG_4199 IMG_4200 Middle Dude decided he was mantle-worthy…IMG_4201  and that he would like some company …dippyIMG_4215swsIn case you would like to access the video instruction and models:

I am so incredibly impressed.
I love your dudes.
I am also absolutely crazy about moms with exacto knives.

Merritt & Mason want me to make these now. Molly is reading over my shoulder & says, "I like it too."

These are awesome. It's so funny how these cut outs went viral. Everybody I knew with boys was doing them them this season!!!
