A Little Treat

Stamps: 3-SCWDSM School Words Clear Set, 9-8599B Thanks a bunch

I found this cute little pencil set in the dollar bin at Jo-Ann's. Underneath the lined paper, the actual tube is plain cardboard...perfect for altering! I thought it would be a cute little treat for a Kindergartner headed off to school. I don't have one of those so I guess this one will sit on my shelf. Not enough colors for my big kids. I used the new School Words Clear Set to decorate the lined paper with, then created a tag using an apple from the clear set along with one of the new wood mounted sentiments. There's one more new thing in this picture....do you see it? You've already seen the red polka dot ribbon but now there's yellow polka dot ribbon, too!!! Wohoo!

That is really adorable, Novell. Maybe you could find a neighbor or niece or nephew who could use this.

This is adorable! What a great idea to alter that little container! You are so clever! Wish we had a JoAnn's nearby- I do have a Kindergartener this year and she would be thrilled- maybe I can adapt this to her pencil box.
