Supplies Needed To Make Q Tip Skeletons

Black Cardstock

– White cardstock or paper

– Q-tips

– Scissors

– Glue – I like to use an extra strong glue for q tips like a non-toxic Tacky glue. You can also use hot glue or regular white glue. For regular white glue, make sure to allow time for it to dry before moving your final art project.
