    The Royal Couple Immortalized in Toothpicks

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     toothpickart makes portraits out of toothpicks for a living. He has been doing this for 39 years. He made this portrait in about three weeks out of 137 toothpicks. 'This is a labor of love. The royal couple signifies a new generation for the British people. I wish them a lifetime of happiness.'
    - nancyt3, CNN iReport producer

    Steven J. Backman created this one-of-a-kind likeness of Prince William and Catherine Middleton from 137 toothpicks and glue. It took 3 painstaking weeks to make but it was a labor of love. Even though the toothpicks were mounted on a flat surface, the portrait looks 3 dimensional.
