{IBS} Butterfly Pencil Holders

“Good morning.  

I hope that you are all having a fabulous week.   I have really gotten into altering items lately and I am having so much putting these little projects together!!   Today, I want to share a little project I did for one of my husbands co-workers.   He walked into her office one day and saw these makeshift pencil holders.  He turned to me for help and these are what I created.
Inspired by Stamping, Calypso Bastian, Fancy Labels 2 Die, Fancy Labels 2 Stamp Set, pencil case
Throughout the week he was able to gather information from her.  So with those clues I got to work on these immediately.  The first tin is wrapped in cork, ruffled trim and bling!!   The second tin is wrapped in colored burlap, pleated twill and twine.  I stamped one of the frames from Fancy Labels 2 stamp set, on chalkboard paper and embossed in white powder.  I chose the chalkboard paper because, it was super black and it drew the attention of the eyes directly to it. I then cut it out using the coordinating Fancy Labels 2 Die. So if you guessed, the lady loves butterflies.  I used different types of butterfly to make each can different, yet beautiful to be admired by all that walks into her office.
So I hope that today’s inspiration will encourage you to not only use your stamps on cards and layouts, but on any project!! Have a beautiful week.
