CIY Staff Tips:

  • This project uses toothpicks. Adult assistance required.
  • Another way to create a pencil holder is by wrapping Model Magic around an upcycled mason jar and decorating with glitter glue.


Step 1

Roll out Model Magic so that it is about 1” thick.

Step 2

Use a small cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes in Model Magic.

Step 3

Create Valentine’s messages in your Model Magic using a toothpick.

Step 4

Accent the messages with glitter glue. Let dry 3–4 hours.

Step 5

Use the tip of a coloured pencil to create a hole in the bottom of the hearts, then place each heart on the top of the coloured pencil.

Step 6

Roll out a large piece of Model Magic so that it is about 2” thick.

Step 7

Use a large cookie cutter to cut out a heart shape.

Step 8

Use the tip of a coloured pencil to create shallow holes on the large heart.

Step 9

Once Model Magic has dried overnight, use the large heart as a pencil holder.
