It's Word Week at Just Us Girls
and Vicki has chosen the word
I don't really have a lot of school stamps so I had to stretch my brain to come up with something. I remembered a die I bought a long time ago and probably only used once.
The pencil is from PTI and comes as three dies. I cut the wood part from kraft paper that I edged with DI and added the lead with a marker. I printed the sentiments from my computer onto yellow paper, cut them out and glued over the wood. Lastly I added the eraser and metal band. I happened to have the lined paper in my stash. I tried regular writing paper but it was too thin and the adhesive showed through.
The Design Team and our September Guest Designer, Janet

Wow Bobby those pencils are so well put together - clever! Like how you made them so bright and how lucky to have the paper with the ever so familiar lines we used when I was at school. Mind you it WAS a long time ago. You nailed this weeks challenge.ReplyDelete
