X is for Xylophone



When I was thinking about words for letter "X", xylophone came to mind. I remembered my son's Little Tikes piano and thought it would make a cute card - similar in concept to my drum design. Instead of using quilling paper on the ends of the sticks, I thought beads might work. And I was happy to find that they fit perfectly on the toothpicks! Wouldn't this make a cute card for a music teacher?
