I do this project a lot with my class and the results are always great! Works for cards, wrapping paper or just a nice picture in a nice frame.

Thank you all for the comments. I'm glad you all liked it. Incredibly easy. I put up two more pictures and one is of a card that might be used as a Valentines card.

Very cool!
It just goes along with how something so simple as a drop of paint and straw, can make a work of art So detailed...
