Pencil

How to make it:

Step 2: Santa’s Flower Beard

that is really cute! My kids would love that! Last month my daughter had a project where she had to give her paper turkey a disguise so he wouldn't get "eaten" for Thanksgiving. We glued eyelash yarn all over it and called it a cat.

What a cute card design! I'll be lucky if my photo prints arrive in time to slip inside our cards and get them mailed, LOL.
