Pen Holder

For those of you who follow my blog, will know that I work part-time as a Teaching Assistant, in the Reception Department of a primary school.  This week we have been busy introducing 90 of the cutest 4 year old children into the Reception Department.  Gosh, they come out with the funniest and cutest comments.  I have had a relatively easy week as they have only been coming in the mornings, but from next week the children are going to be introduced to a full school day!

Sorry, for the ramblings. I am in school mode, as we have spent weeks preparing the classrooms for the arrival of the new intake of children.  When I saw the Sneak Peak files for September by Lettering Delights, I couldn't resist making a pen holder.  It is a super quick project but gives you a suggestion on how to make use of the files. 

I took a 285g tin from my larder, removed the lid and label then washed thoroughly.  

I then measured a strip of paper that would fit around my tin.  In my Pazzles software, I selected the text tool and typed the alphabet using LD Trainer Vertical Lined Dots. I then layered the image over the top of the font design. I printed the design from my software and as there are straight edges, I simply cut the strips using my paper trimmer.

Finally, I wrapped and adhered the layers around my pot and filled it with pens.  

Told you it was a super quick project!

Here below, are the September Sneak Peek files which would be great for labels, notebooks, scrapbook layouts etc.

Have fun with these files and many more HERE.
