Puffy Tissue Paper Pencil

Depending on where you live, your kids are either back in school by now or they will be within the next couple of weeks. In the spirit of "back to school" I've created this fun art project for the kids shaped like a pencil. It's a great after school project, or a fun art assignment if you're a teacher!

You will need:

Recycled cardboard or card stock
Tissue paper: pink, gold (or silver), yellow, white, black
Aleene's Tacky School Glue
Pencil with an eraser
Pencil pattern

Print off the pattern provided. If you are using card stock, you can print it directly onto the card stock. If using cardboard, print on regular paper, cut it out and trace it onto the cardboard. Another option is to just glue the cut-out pattern directly to the cardboard so that your child will have the pattern lines to use as a guide.

Tear or cut tissue paper into squares. They do not need to be perfect, but try to keep them roughly the same size so that your finished project is fairly even.

Apply Tacky Glue to the eraser section of the pencil pattern.

Place your pencil's eraser into the center of a pink tissue paper square.

Wrap the square around the pencil eraser.

Stick the tissue paper into the glue using the eraser, then pull the pencil up and out, leaving the tissue paper standing in the glue.

Repeat these steps with pink squares for the eraser, gold squares for the metal section of the pencil, yellow for the pencil body, white for the wood, and finally black for the lead.

After being in relationship with George for five years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called DR Mako and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 6pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him :+2347054263874.

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
