It's Crafty Tuesday again! Have you done any crafting this week? I decided to do a Halloween craft this week. I wanted to do a craft for Thanksgiving but I couldn't think of something...yet. Might try working on something this week for Monday (our Thanksgiving) and then tell you about it next week.
This week I made a Halloween Pencil Holder. I thought this might be great for my daughter's class. Something other than the usual candy treats she'll end up bringing home. I only made one today to see if she likes it. I may try making a couple different things and then let her pick. Also need to see if my son, who is in grade 7 this year wants to take anything in to school. He may be past doing that but I should still ask him.
What you will need:
- Paper cutter
- Stampin' Up!® Scallop Circle Punch
- Stampin' Up!® 1 3/8" Circle Punch
- Stampin' Up!® Batty For You stamp set
- Stampin' Up!® Basic Black stamp pad
- 1 Sheet Stampin' Up!® Pumpkin Pie Cardstock (8 1/2x11)
- 1 Sheet Stampin' Up!® Basic Black Cardstock (8 1/2x11)
- 1 Sheet Stampin' Up!® Whisper White Cardstock (8 1/2x11)
- 1 Sheet Stampin' Up!® Ghostly Greetings DSP (12x12)
- Cut your Pumpkin Pie cardstock so it measures 6 3/8" x 3 5/8".
- Turn your paper long ways (so it is tall) and score it at the following intervals: 3/8", 1 5/8", 2", 3 1/4". Then turn the paper 90 degrees (so it is wide) and score just one end at 3/8".
- On the end that you just scored, make a cut on each of the score lines. You can cut off one of the little tabs at either end if you want to.
- Fold on the score lines and then apply your adhesive and attach. You now have your pencil holder. Now let's decorate!
- Cut a piece of your designer paper to measure 3 5/8" x 1 1/2" and attach to the top of your box.
- Use your scallop circle punch on the Basic Black card stock
- Using your Basic Black ink, ink up one of the stamps from the Batty for You set and stamp it on the Whisper White Cardstock. Let dry.
- Use your circle punch and punch out your stamped image.
- Use your adhesive and apply your stamped image to the black scalloped circle. Apply adhesive to the back of the scallop and attach it to your pencil box.
- Put your pencils inside!
Hope you liked this week's craft & don't forget to come by next week to see what we'll be making. Now go have fun and get crafty!
