Fun Pencils

This was a quick and easy project that I made for the girls on my SU Demo Getaway weekend.  I was shopping in the Target Dollar Spot one day (well maybe they don’t call it that anymore) and saw some fun pencils that looked like our SU colors – they were Emerald Envy, Blushing Bride and Basic Black.  I picked up a bunch of them to use as a little “pillow” gift for the getaway weekend.  Here is what I did with them.

I put three pencils in one of the 6×8 cello bags and stapled it shut.  The pencils are about as tall as the bags so I pushed them to one side at the top and stapled as close as I could get so that it would hold them in there.

Then I wanted to decorate the bag with a fun tag.  I decided the Pick a Pattern Designer Paper was a perfect fit and grabbed one of the Emerald Envy patterns and one of the Basic Black patterns – I cut those into strips and punched with the Triple Banner Punch.  I also cut a strip of Blushing Bride card stock and punch the end of it.  I stamped on the card stock with the Pieces & Patterns stamp set.  I also grabbed little bits of ribbon in the coordinating colors – Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding, Blushing Bride Double-Stitched Ribbon and some Black Mini Sequin Trim.  I stapled all those together at the top of my bag.

To finish the tag I stamped a bunch of the bears on Watercolor Paper and water-colored them in with some Sahara Sand ink.  Then I fussy cut the bear and attached him with a mini Stampin’ Dimensional.

Aspen was helping with the bears!

Not really he was just sleeping next to me and I wondered how many bears I could lay on him before he noticed.  The answer is 6 – just 6.  Then he looked up at me like what is going on here.

I love fun pencils and have lots of different ones.  I pretty much write everything in pencil – because then I can erase mistakes or when things change.  My calendar would be a mess if I didn’t write things in pencil.  Do you use a pencil or mostly write with a pen?

Have a great day!
