I used his templates but did them on cardboard instead of wood. You could easily make your own designs too (I'm just not that great at that kind of thing) :-) Then instead of using a wood burner to create the details I used a Sharpie after I applied watercolor paints.
They're super cool, but the main reason I made these is because most of them are small enough to fit into plastic Easter eggs!
I'm also making cardboard versions of the "Small Wooden Animals" in the book. Those aren't quite ready yet though. These are a nice alternative to candy. :-)
I'm having a blast at these lovely linking parties.
