Photo Pencils

In case you missed it or didn't get a chance to go visit me at Get Your Craft On last Friday.  This is what we made.


That's my adorable little niece.  She's sassy and spunky and a big ball of fun.

What you need-
An adorable subject and three 5 by 6 inch laser copies of the photo on REGULAR PRINTER PAPER (don't use a photo with too much detail, mine is about as small as your going to want to go) you can use a photo of anything you like, doesn't have to be a portrait.
mod podge
paint brush
paper cutter
set of 12 pencils





If you don't have access to a laser printer you can use double stick tape rather than mod podge, but mod podge allows for the pencil to be sharpened without the picture getting all ripped up in the sharpener.

Cut your photos up into 1.25 inch strips, make sure you keep them in order.  You can stack the like strips into one pile.  Separate your pencils into groups of three.


 Each stack of three (three of the same strips) will wrap around a set of three pencils.  If your photo has a small face (like mine) take one of your outside pencils, print a 4th picture, and cut a 1.25 inch strip with the center of the face.


On a protected surface, cover the back of each strip with mod podge and wrap it around each pencil.  Make sure the edges are sealed with a little bit of mod podge around the edges.  

Continue until all your photos are covered.


Roll each pencil until your picture appears!

Enjoy!


If you visit a country where you will find thomas sabo earrings & laptops, so be hurry and check their genuineness, raymond weil watches and dkny watches are copied with their designs with a charm of swiss army watches.

  17. Just made the pencil set (it's drying now)! Plan on making a lot of these for kiddo's birthdays this year to give (along with a sketchbook). I do have a question: what size of photo did you use? I used a 5x7 and it was too big (luckily had enough background that I was able to not use all the pic).
