Pencil Gifts

As you can see by today's gift, I made pencil holders. I actually ran out of pencils while making these and added a pen to one of them. These are for my nieces and nephews this year. Instead of candy or junky little toys, I decided to give them pencils. What an exciting Aunt I am right? It's better than toothbrushes now!

Not all of these us Stampin' Up! supplies. But I just wanted to share a picture of them all together. I hope the kids like them, and use them!

Here are the directions for making the pencil holders:

-Cut a piece of card stock 6.5in x 6.5in
-Stamp as you like- wheels would work great for this!
-From one edge of the cardstock measure and score at the 1in mark.
-From the same edge measure and score at the 3.75in mark.
-Tape the stamped side of the 1in fold.
-Tape the non-stamped side of the center panel at the very bottom.
-Fold into a pouch.
-Use your crimper to crimp the bottom inch or so.
-Use your slit punch to cut a “U” shape in the top.

Happy Stampin!

I love these, Jen, but couldn't you sneak in one pixy stick or candy cane? ;)

Very cute! My son is very into mechanical pencils right now and was excited to see your pencil holders.
