|Look at those skinny legs....I'm jealous!!|
So in honor of the first day of school for many today I made these cute little pencil gifts. I love the new 1x8 Cello treat bags from Stampin' Up! As you can see you can fit 2 pencils easily (and I can't wait to try out some other treats!). It has a nice flap that you just peel of the little plastic bit and it's nice and sticky so you don't have to worry about sealing it with SNAIL or Sticky Strip. You can find the cello bags in the Holiday Mini.
I made a quick tag using the large scallop circle punch with Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the School Lines mini background stamp on the Whisper White using Baja Breeze ink. The owl is punched out in Soft Suede with First Edition DSP for his tummy. I used the Good Grids mini background stamp with Crumb Cake ink on the tummy piece just to give it some texture (and to stay with the school theme!). The feet are Pumpkin Pie and the eyes are Basic Black and Whisper White and the heart is Cherry Cobbler. Everything was adhered with Tombow Multi...I love the fine tip on this glue for adhering small pieces; you get the glue just where you need it.
I hope your babies all got to school safely this morning. I'm going to be on pins and needles all day just waiting for Ryan to get home and tell us all about the first day of kindergarten!
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
