Bold Blossom Pencil Holder

This was a fun little project we made at a recent birthday party for some fantastic 10 year old girls. They loved the glitter pencils! Target $1 section - gotta love it!

Quick dimensions and directions for the pencil holder: Start with a piece of 11" x 2" cardstock; score at 4" and 4 1/2". Fold up to make a pouch and punch a small opening for the pencils to slip into. Secure top of the pouch with Sticky Strip. Decorate as desired! *Tip* - if you are going to stamp on the background of the pencil holder, it works best if you do your stamping before you create the pencil pocket.

Stamps: Bold Blossom
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive
Accessories: 1 3/8" Circle punch, Scallop Circle punch, Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, pencils, small oval punch (retired)
