God's Eyes 3-D

My friend Michelle has inspired me on more than one occasion to think about the crafty possibilities of cereal box cardboard! Guess what - I just used it again - to make God's Eyes! And turned what was at first a negative outcome into a very cool new way to make God's Eyes! 3-D God's eyes!
