August Krazy Crafting Crew Blog Hop Day #2!


Welcome back to day two of the School is cool blog hop brought to you by the Krazy Crafting Crew!!  This month's hostess is the wonderful Jearise and this is where you should start if you just stumbled upon my blog.  If you have gotten out of study hall by way of the CardMonkey you are headed in the right direction!!

For my project today I have made a welcome back to school pencil holder, made from pencils!  

Just add a little gift tag and it's perfect for that 1st day of school present!


This was super simple to make.  I just took a vegetable can, painted the outside red and the inside blue.  Added a piece of foam inside, measured the pencils, cut off the bottoms (well actually my hubby cut the bottoms off) and hot glued them all around the can.  Add a pretty bow and it's done!

Hope you enjoyed my quick and simply project for today.  Class is back in session at Lisa's blog so don't be late!

How wickedly cute is that can!? Super sweet. And when the teacher makes a very big error on a bad day in the classroom, she can turn it over and use two hands to erase alllll the student grades in her grading book, LOL. Sweet! And how come hubby had to cut the pencils down? We girls need pink tools!
POWER TOOLS, yum! LOL

Fondly,

Love your pencil can. Wish my husband could cut some pencils off for me to make one. I'm a teacher and this would be so cute on my desk. TFS.
