Pencil Cup


I thought it would be fun to share a few of my back-to-school designs with you this week. When I saw the new pencil stamp, I immediately envisioned using it for a pencil cup! This is a super quick and easy project - all you need is an emtpy can. (Gave me a good excuse to clean out my pantry looking for expired cans - *grin*!) I used a smooth edge can opener, so there are no sharp edges to worry about. Then I just wrapped Scor-tape around the top and bottom edges and adhered the paper, then added the pencil image layer - and done!

My son had a good first week of kindergarten! I still have some questions to be answered, but there is an open house coming up so that should answer most of them. The school has a new principal and vice-principal, so it's an adjustment for everyone I guess - things seem a bit disorganized. But it will all be smoothed out soon I'm sure!
