I never know what the Smart Art project is in advance which makes it extra fun to open.

The Instructions / Suggested Project

The box always includes detailed instructions to complete the project.  Of course, you can also branch out on your own and explore with the materials.  I started this and realized that this is not the technique I am best at (which is why my project isn’t posted).  I did have fun with it, though, and it let me be creative, so it was still a win.  Plus how do you know if you love something unless you try it out?
