Who doesn’t love eyeballs you can juggle or throw at your little brother? (The latter idea was presented by my oldest, who presented it with a delightful war cry as he hurled it across the room.)
These are great for scrap busting, and are really great for craft fairs. Oh, and I can’t wait to fill a glass hurricane with these for Halloween. *Rubs hands together* So please, make lots of these, sell them, juggle them, and throw them at your brother.
Finished eyeballs are 3 inches in diameter.
