    Thank you for the comments, ladies. Pam and her son are this week’s winners! Please be sure to post a photo of your creation on our Facebook page @ StyroCrafts, Pam. We’d love to see the tower! We’ll have another Wednesday giveaway next week, so please keep following along! Sharon

  2. I love these projects. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m wondering how many crafters who are into altered books and collage would love using the bricks in their projects? Can you drill a hole in the brick? I’m wondering how I could turn it into wearable art…. All the possibilities….

      Hi Carol, great ideas! It would be easy to poke a hole in the bricks using a wood skewer, nail, or other tool with a point. Thanks for the creative ideas! Sharon

  3. Haha! Eileen is right! They are too cute!

    After conferring with my 15yr old son, we would build the leaning tower of Pisa. He would do the building and I would landscape the surrounding support base. (i think he chose that edifice because it was on the leftover pizza box in the fridge and it is lunchtime lol)

    Love them! I will have to have the Grandson make some with me!
