I'm sorry, but I'm a bit confused by this... Are the chopstick quills optional or something? Because it seems like you wouldn't be able to put pencils in it if it has chopsticks glued in, right? Or am I misunderstanding the directions?
I think the chopsticks are meant to be optional, you could put in chopsticks if you don't need all those holes so that it wouldn't look empty..
Yeah, okay, that's what I figured. Thank you!

During the Chopsticks challenge I looked at this several times, very good use of color, shows how much I use clay, I didn't know there were different colors you could buy I've always just assumed people dyed them or something. Good 'ible!

the pens go between the chopsticks
I once made a metal variation of this that was a sea urchin!

Thanks! But just in case someone hasn't seen one of these guys before...I want to make sure to point out that I didn't come with a porcupine holder, just this version and using chopsticks. i had a plastic one when I was little that had a pencil sharpener for a nose : )
