Back To School


Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge theme is "Who Loves School and Office Supplies" and who doesn't. My daughter always said that was her favorite part of starting school is to go get all her new paper, pencils, pens, etc.
My project was made for my daughters BFF. She just received her teaching credentials and has her first class of 4th graders this month.
I got this inspiration from Tara Orr's blog (an amazing G45 designer) and immediately knew it would be perfect for Amanda's desk.
Purchased this tin and pencils at the Dollar Store and painted the tin black.
Used the G45 paper line "ABC Primer" and covered each pencil. The pencils were then glued to the outside of the bucket. Ribbon was tied around the pencils and a tag was made. Distressed the edges and embellished it with brads.
 
A coat of Rock Candy crackle paint was applied for texture and to finish it off I added a Muse Token from Ideaology.
Congratulations Miss Amanda, we know you are going to be a wonderful teacher !
