CAS:Colored Pencils

Hello Crafters! 

It's Kelly here to share a cute little CAS card with you. 

Ack! Are you dying of cuteness overload?!

I was surfing the web the other night and found this little tutorial for creating miniature colored pencils.

They were so adorable I knew I had to make a card with them. Thanks to Jungle Fever I had the perfect sentiment to go with it!

The tutorial said to cut them in half but I decided I wanted varying lengths. I thought it looked more playful that way. Also I used an old Making Memories sanding block I had instead of sandpaper. I used copics to color them. 

In order to get a really saturated color I went over them twice. Even then, they were super simple to make.

I love the way it turned out. These little guys would be perfect for a Teacher thank you  . . maybe paired with the "You Are Awesome" from Friends in The Woods. Or you could use "Where's Your Happy Place?"from Comfy on a scrapbook layout of your child coloring. I think the use of these little guys is endless! 

Thanks for visiting!
