Image of Daffodil Pencil
This cute cover will brighten up a standard pencil! While it is almost too pretty to use, the reality is that pencils get shorter as they are used and sharpened. As the pencil shortens, push the covering up; when that is no longer possible, you can move the flower to another pencil.

Daffodil Pencil Reviewed by Elizabeth Daudelin on 2014-05-02 *****
This turned out beautiful! I made one for a friend, then for my two sisters, and then for two of my students. Now I want to make a whole bouquet out of them! And I'm going to try them on pens so people don't need to feel bad about using them. :D
