I made another pencil holder with these adorable cups (first pencil holder here). This time I used Mary Margaret, teacher´s pet from Michelle Perkett (her Etsy shop here!)
Mel (if you can visit her awesome blog, you won´t regret it!). I took the white image and colored it with colored pencils leaving out the dress. I cut around her arms to make room so I could slip under the dress. Then I colored MM´s dress with colored pencils, cut it and glued it to the base image, and I slipped a piece of cardstock under her dress and the apple to give a little bit of dimension.
The pencils on the first picture seemed to plain, so I made tags for them. My first inchies!! (I´m full of firsts today!) I cut four 1.5 in diameter circles of craft cardstock and decorating them with scraps of everything.
Shirley´s 2 girls and I colored them also with colored pencils. I distressed the edges with chalks, added some stickers (hearts and stars), used edge scissors, doodled with white gel pen, used scraps of felt, made a hole with a paper punch and tied them to the pencils with raffia.
