I used these stencils with my students to make Christmas cards, and they were so excited with the results, as was I. We also decided to make Christmas Thank you cards for them to send out of state relatives who sent them gifts, and they couldn't wait to send them out! How's that for getting kids to even do that? Normally it's tough just getting them to sign their names on one! They were used 100's of times, and are still in perfect condition!!
I purchased the 24" T-Square. I have used the plastic ones in the past and never did like them. With the Precision Aluminum T-Square you don't have to worry about chipping the material. I would recommend this T-Square above any other.
these are my my favorite pearlescent paints.
I have been looking to replace my old set.
The paints are creamy and so sparkly when mixed with little water. I love to create cards and
these are the best.
