Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you have a love-ly day! These pencil toppers were made as Valentines for my students. I did 50 of them - a class set for both my mother's class and my own. The paper are all bits from my scrap pile. (Now isn't that scary!) I used my heart and scalloped heart Nesties for the shape. The sentiments are computer generated on my computer. I used recycled bits of EZ mount between the two hearts so the paper wouldn't crinkle when I inserted the pencil between the layers. The pencils came from the local teacher store. I find the dollar store pencils do not sharpen well. The little extra money is worth the fact that they last 5 times longer.

I'm sorry the image is a little fuzzy. It is perfectly clear in IPhoto so I am not sure what blogger is doing to the image. Is anyone else having problems or is it "end-loser error"?
