should be an ad for Michaels...

I found these colored pencil sets
in the $1 bin at Michaels.

So I wrapped some pretty paper around them
and tied them with a linen thread...

and then stenciled my art kiddos' names on the tubes -
an early Valentines Day present.

And these frames also came from Michaels for $1 each
(see - I told you it was a Michael's ad).

So this was my sample.

We dipped corks, bottle caps, lids, and cardboard
into pastel paint then
added Sharpie designs...

plus buttons and sparklies...

to make these beautiful Valentines Day presents
for their parents.

Aren't they adorable?
Make one with your kids today!
