You all might remember my post earlier this year about the adorable toppers http://doingitwithink.blogspot.com/2011/09/how-cute-are-these.html that Tracey designed over at http://www.gr8scraps.blogspot.com. Well I fell in love with them and scaled down her sizes (she made hers for jumbo candy canes) to make for pencil toppers for Jackson's kindergarten class
. They are not allowed by the school to bring candy, so I figured a couple of packs of $tree pencils would be perfect. Then I added an eyelet and stung some gold thread to make a hanger, so that the kids can remove the pencils and still have an ornament for their tree. I block of white styrefoam makes a good base to stick the pencils in and will be fairly easy to carry into the school the day of the party. The pencils have a glue dot and a small band of cardstock holding them on the back, easy to remove and not damage the toppers/ornaments. These were all cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and CTMH cardstock. It was so easy to do when my cricut did all the cutting.
I'd love to know what you think? I have several Christmas gifts I'm working on for friends and family and will be posting them as I complete them.
