Favorite things

This was and is one of my favorite crafty things to make with paper. Did anyone else do this as a kid? You just cut little squares (1 inch or so) of tissue paper, wrap them around the end of a pencil and glue them onto paper. It is so satisfying to see it come together all frilly and fluffy. I showed the kids how to do it last night so now there are little squares of tissue paper floating all over the house. I think we will make some more tonight. I love Valentines Day!

That is so beautiful - I would never have thought it is a simple as your instructions.
I must have a try.
