Wednesday already?!? You know what that means, a new challenge from Cuttlebug Challenge. This week's challenge is to make a school project & use your Cuttlebug. Our sponsor this week is Cosmo Cricket. I got to play with the Lil' Man paper collection and I love it. It was perfect for a school project.
Here is my creation:
I decided to make a pencil holder for a little boy, using a baseball theme with my Cuttlebug & the new Diamond Plate embossing folder. The Diamond Plate is perfect for sports themes. All of my supplies are from Cosmo Cricket (even the fab ribbon), Provo Craft, and Core'dinations.
I bought a cheap pencil holder at Wal-Mart and used my cutting knife to cut out the shape of the pencil holder. I then covered it with the paper and added a strip of embossed paper around that and a ribbon edge. I then added a Cosmo Cricket tag, that I inked around the edges with MS ink and added Cosmo Cricket chipboard.
I also tied a ribbon around my pencils and added a chipboard star that I tied on with twine. I then wrapped my glue stick with patterened paper and added ribbon and a chipboard star.
Here's a close up of my tag and pencils:
Now I have to make a confession as to why I went with a baseball theme. My little Jack Russell Terrier, Jake, is obsessed with balls. We always have to take a supply with us on vacation and they always seem to get misplaced....not anymore:) This handy dandy pencil holder is pulling double duty as Jake's ball carrier.
