That is so freaking cute!
So cute! Great tutorial!! You have a neat blog!
Thanks Nix! Your illustrations are awesome! Are you going to sell prints?
This is soooo cute! But I have no idea where to find those wood buttons!
Hey Carina, I've made a little pack available in my Etsy Store... http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27291662Or, try looking at a wood work craft site. I got mine here in the UK.. so I can't recommend a site if you're not here! Good Luck!
This is so cute ! Thanks for sharing !
I love, love, love this!! Glad I found your blog via One Pretty Thing.
Fantástica idea! Gracias!
Holy stinking cute!! Thanks so much for sharing!:)Rachel
Those are absolutely adorable! Thanks for sharing.
I have looked EVERYWHERE in the US for wooden pencils like the ones you have in your photo. Is there a website where I can purchase them? I know you sell the set at your Etsy page, but I already have the buttons....could you sell the pencils separately?THANKS for sharing your creative ideas!
Hi Mama's boys.. funny name.. I can sell them to you for the same price as the listing, but will throw in 3 more pencils instead of the buttons :) Just let me know in the comments section that it's you!I just had a quick look on the US sites, and yup, hard to find!!!
love them - such a simple but great idea!
These are so cute. I can't wait to make some!
These are adorable!! I'm thinking of using them for my desk pencils at work (I'm a teacher)! Thanks for sharing!
Adorable! I love them! These would actually make a good gift for an old-school video-game lover - think Mario!
So clever--thanks for the tute!
these are adorable!!! Thanks for sharing!
How cute are these ,making some for kids going back to school treat.Wonderful tutorial!hugs
Wonderful. I just shared this idea in my luscious link love today!
Where do you find the natural pencils? I've looked all over and I'm dying to make some of these.
Hi Windy, I got these pencils from a stationary shop online in the UK.. here's the site: DiscountOfficeProducts.co.ukbut when you get them they're going to look a little nasty, and you'll have to clean each one up as the lead (graphite) power has rubbed all over the pencils.. Very annoying, but I haven't been able to find any other suppliers..good luck!
Hello! Did you know you were on BigFatCake? It was from earlier this year:www.bigfatcake.com/blog/2009/08/wii-want-a-wii-wedding/
Hi Christine, thanks for letting me know! Always nice to know people are sharing what I've done!Kimanh
So, so cute! What type of glue do you use?
HI Calli Makes Do, I just used an all-rounder kind of glue. Because it's wood on wood, any sort of wood glue is going to work perfectly :)Cheers, Kimanh
love them! I am so going to make myself a set!

hi! I just posted a little shout out to this tutorial! :) http://kateandoli.blogspot.com/2010/06/tutorial-toadstool-pencils.html
Those are super cute! ^.^
Just a tip to those in the US... the flat-ended pencils are sold as "golf pencils". I found them at Office Max: http://www.officemax.com/office-supplies/pens-pencils-markers/pencils/wood-pencils/product-ARS21772?cm_mmc=GBase-_-Office%20Supplies-_-Pens,%20Pencils,%20and%20Markers%20-_-Pencils&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=20793330
Thanks for posting Chelonia!!
Nifty idea! I'm thinking maybe of doing the heel end of a crochet hook that way. Thanks for the inspiration!Jimbo
Whats the status of your etsy shop? I have not been able to find pencils for this project online or in store as I am in the US. While the golf pencils kind of work, the ones I've seen are kind of ugly to be honest =(
Hi Pkatal, my Etsy store is closed... I think I should probably officially close ti down rather than say I'm on vacation. While my little store was fun and gave me a little extra cash, it was enough to pay the bills. Since then I've done some study and gotten a full-time job, and there's no way I would manage having a store.. I can't even keep up with blogging.. it's on my to do list though!If they ship overseas, I bought my pencils from: www.discountofficeproducts.co.ukAnd the product name is: Half length wooden pencils with HB lead, BOX of 144But they're not high quality. You may want use an eraser to clean the graphite of the sides.Best wishes!Kimanh
Love this too! Please email me (in reply)I can't find your email address. I'd love to feature you on my blog. Thanks.
I enjoyed following the whole entry, I always thought one of the main things to count when you write a blog is learning how to complement the ideas with images, that's exploiting at the maximum the possibilities of a ciber-space! Good work on this entry!
These are so cute. I can't wait to make some!
Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works.
