Taylor at MaryJanes and Galoshes did this innovative project: making photo pencils! What a cool project, and you can make them with any photo you want. These would make a great inexpensive handmade gift for birthday parties, and definitely have a wow-factor that should impress almost anyone. You can get colored pencils at the dollar store.
