The theme for our projects is Back To School. I don't have any kids of my own, but several of my friends do. I have wonderful memories of my childhood and being in school. Sometimes, I wish I could go back....LOL!!! I just remember life being simpler. ;)
For my project (and your prize), I made this fun little pencil container.
It all started with a plain water bottle:
Wrapping the cardstock around the bottle was pretty easy. I used the following A Muse Studio cardstock for the pencil:
The pencil top was also pretty easy to make, but it was difficult to secure because of the odd shape of the top. So, whoever wins my project....there's a "not-so-pretty" anchor inside the pencil top. ;)
The pencil top is a half circle. After trying different sizes (I used lids to pots to draw the circle...LOL!!....Spellbinders wasn't big enough), I ended up using a 7 inch circle....again, cut in half. The lead was colored with Copic Special Black marker.
Along with the pencil water bottle, I made some nugget treat wrappers using the A Muse Studio School Days set.
I'm filling the pencil with goodies for school, including the nugget treats. I'm not revealing what other goodies will be in the pencil.. it'll be a SURPRISE!!
Letters you need to collect from me: nds
Hope you enjoyed my project. Your next stop is Heather's Blog.
