* Re-Cycled Tissue Paper Sunflower Bowl Craft for Kids

This was our second project from Jane Bull's book, "Make It!"
We had plenty of eco paste leftover from our 
Re-cycled Paper Bowl making project. 

I have to admit that I really wanted to make this sunflower bowl too. 
I was excited when "E" asked if she could make one.

We already had our eco-paste made from the re-cycled paper bowl project.
For instructions see this post. 

"E" shredded a bunch of tissue paper into strips. 
She worked with yellow, orange, green, and blue.

She greased up one of my kitchen bowls with a layer of vaseline
then got to work layering the tissue paper strips with eco-paste. 
We found that the best system was for me to hand her strips with my 
non-sticky handys while she stayed goopy and spread out the glue/goop. 

She worked from green to blue then added the yellow and orange. 
The overlapping areas in the center look dark (sort of brownish) just like a real sunflower. 

She put her sunflower bowl in the art studio to dry with 
the other paper bowls. 

The tissue paper sunflower dried a lot faster than the paper pulp bowls did.
It was dry in 2 or 3 days instead of 4-5 days. 

Here's the bottom of the sunflower bowl. 

E did a great job on her tissue paper sunflower bowl, I love it! 
I'm thinking it needs some brown M&Ms.
