It worked for me! You'd be surprised all the goodies they have and don't use! You'll need to gather together scrap boxes from cereal, or in my case junk food, also you'll need drawing supplies, anything you feel comfortable with. For mine I used nice colored pencils, good ole #2 pencils the kind your grade school teacher was always demanding, and I used a cheap ink pen that I got for free. I also found myself using school glue, and a few sprays of clear coat spray paint from the dollar store. You don't have to use this medium, you may feel more comfortable with paint, or decoupage, this is a fun project and there are no rules.
