Hi bloggers! Happy Monday! I'm pleased to bring you a sweet project from Lawn Fawn's own Kelly Alvarez! I loved Kelly's naming of this project as 'pencil decor'! It's a great teacher gift or fun for friends and co-workers! I will let the expert tell you all about how to make these cute little crafts yourself!
I thought it would be fun to create some cute pencil favors for Valentine's Day! This is a cute gift idea for kids' classrooms or even as a kitschy present for friends or coworkers.This idea would work well for lollipops, too.
I started with a 1" x 1.5" piece of card stock. I cut two 5/8" slits with a craft knife close to the edge (as shown in the photo below). A pencil will slip easily through the two cuts. You can always alter the size of the slit depending on what you are decorating.
I then cut some red scalloped circles and white circles with my Silhouette. It is a great machine for doing mass production like this! I decorated the circles with Bee Mine and Here's the Scoop, Lawn Fawn's new Valentine's Day sets. I did some simple Copic coloring so it would be easy to make a lot of them. To get the perfect pink ink for my bee trail and hearts, I stamped off my red ink on to scratch paper and then stamped with the ink that was left on the stamp on my project. This gives the perfect coordinating pink to a red ink. I love that!
I placed adhesive in the middle of that first piece I cut (as shown in the photo) and adhered my circles. A totally cute and fun idea that could work for any holiday!
