Bundle up pencils to form a flower, Grape bunch shape and stamp

We revisited bundled stamping, this time we made prints with bundled pencils!

Materials Used:

Pencils with eraser - 12 nos(got lots of them in the back to school clearance sale @WALMART)
Rubber bands
Poster board/Thick paper
Stamping pad
Felt pen/Washable Marker pen

Steps Overview:

Flower art:

Bundle up pencils with rubber bands so that the erasers form a flower shape.

Press on stamping pad and Stamp on paper!

Wow! Dots that smell sweet!(quote taken from book Lots of Dots

The bundle stamp can be used for making cards and pretty homemade gift wrap paper!

Grape Vine Art:

Add one more pencil to the flower bundle as shown below to form a Grape bunch

Some Dots are Bunchy and Yummy!

I love the grape vine art!
