  1. Nowhere does this say it’s a recycled craft…so just go ahead and use a whole NEW pencil!

  2. cute and easy project, but to stick with the “recycling” aspect of it, make sure these materials (pencil, button, felt, cardstock etc) are all scraps from old projects!!! its not recycling if you go out and buy new materials 🙂
