Crafty Tuesday - Halloween Pencil Holders

>> Tuesday, October 6, 2009

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
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • 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)
  What you need to do:
  1. Cut your Pumpkin Pie cardstock so it measures 6 3/8" x 3 5/8".
  2. 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".
  3. 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. 
  4. Fold on the score lines and then apply your adhesive and attach.  You now have your pencil holder.  Now let's decorate!
  5. Cut a piece of your designer paper to measure 3 5/8" x 1 1/2" and attach to the top of your box.
  6. Use your scallop circle punch on the Basic Black card stock
  7. 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.
  8. Use your circle punch and punch out your stamped image.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
