Belli Challenge #73- Back to School

This weeks challenge is to make a back to school themed project using apples or pencils.


I decided to make a little note card in the shape of a pencil. I took a 3x6 card base and rounded the corners on one side and on the other side I trimmed the edge to a point. Pink cardstock for the eraser, yellow for the main pencil part, kraft for the wood, black for the lead. Then I added some light gray ribbon to make the band that holds the eraser to the pencil. I used my VersaMarker to make the lines and pinking sheers to cut the end of the yellow cardstock. Stamped the sentiment and I was done! I know it sounds like a lot of steps, but it was really pretty easy. I think a bunch of these would make a fun teacher gift!

I hope you'll play along with us! Be sure to check out the other girls creations at The Belli Blog and if you're uploading to SCS or PCP the keyword is CBC73.

Have a super day, thanks for stopping by!
