Recycled Snowflake~Craft Fail?

Recycled Snowflake~Craft Fail?'s the skinny..being a crafter I can't help but want to turn everything I touch into something...
I ran my kids through McDonalds drive thru today and got a drink holder.

When I got home I couldn't help but wonder...what can I make out of this???

And this is what I am up with...

Here is my "Snowflake" on my front door...pic is dark sorry about that..but it doesn't look so hot.
I like that it also looks like a cross....

How I did this:

Step 1: Cut the "wall" off of the Drink Holder

Step 2: I painted it white

Step 3: I added blue glitter


Hmm...not super thrilled with it, however it was fun to make I will give it that.  It's super windy outside so the glitter was flying all over the place. I do like the Snowflake concept.
I think that if I do this again, I would paint it a different color, like blue maybe, since my front door is white.

This would be really easy for a kid to decorate with paint or marker.

Have a great day!
Happy Crafting!!
