So Tweet!

We did something a bit different for my Project Class this month - a Pencil Box! We decorated a plain pencil box with DSP (Cottage Wall from the Autumn/Winter Mini retiring at the end of this month). I also taught how to colour and cover chipboard. We used chipboard from the So Tweet set (also retiring this month). We decorated all 4 sides of the box: I covered up the owl's spooky looking heart-shaped eyes and added some wings too (he looked a bit naked).
Here are the sides:

And a Mummy and baby bird on the other side:
Too cute! It was a fun, and quite therapeutic project to make. However, trying to source the Pencil Boxes was not! I got mine from Bunnings, but I think I've bought out most of the stock in NSW!!

Materials (all Stampin' Up!)
stamps: none!
ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black
card: none!
other: Cottage Wall DSP, sanding blocks, sponge daubers, tombow glue, 1/2" circle punch, heart-to-heart punch, scallop circle punch, dimensionals, white gel pen

    How gorgeous, you have excelled yourself once again. You are a very clever lady, I am always visiting your site for inspiration. Thank you.

  2. I have managed to convince a really great supplier to make me 90 pencil boxes to order - because yes, you did get the last of them from Bunnings! LOL

  3. These are gorgeous. I think you bought out my local Bunnings too as I've checked and nothing there......
