Just a few more days until Halloween, and I have a couple of ideas for teacher gifts, classroom gifts, or small items to put in those candy bags when the kids come a knocking! These are a few more items for my craft fair.
The first is a Halloween pencil case. I found the template to make these cases here. The instructions are simple, allowing you to make 4 boxes from one sheet of 12″ x 12″ paper, and they are so accurate, that 4 pencils fit snugly inside!
I created all of my pencil boxes with Goldrush Cardstock and pieces of patterned retired Halloween papers. I used a Dollar Store ribbon with a spider web design and adhered it around the boxes. Each box was filled with 4 Halloween-themed pencils, and then 1 eraser was added to the bottom of each package.
I tied Thistle ribbon around the top, and then added a tag tied with Hydrangea waxy flax (both retired… I told you that I use up my older supplies for craft fair items!). The tag sentiment was from the Sweet Salutations stamp set, stamped in Goldrush ink, and punched out with a 1.5″ scallop punch.
These quick and easy bookmarks were stamped from retired stamp sets onto White Daisy cardstock, and mounted onto Goldrush cardstock. They were laminated, hole-punched, and then had a matching ribbon tied through the tops.
I will be linking these projects to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges: Boo! challenge.
I’ll see you in the craft room,
