The joy of the first day of school has returned. Moms everywhere are happy to send their kids back to school and the kids are excited to start a new grade, see their friends and get lots of homework-----wait, that's not true!!! Well, not the homework part at least.
Today my baby is starting the first grade. I can't believe how fast time has gone. My oldest is in college and my baby in 1st grade. I remember when my oldest started 1st grade and now it's my baby's turn. Let's not forget my lil' girl who's going to the 4th grade!! What's with that?! I remember when I held her in my arms for the very first time. It's days like today, that we get to cherish for years to come.
On to my project...
I couldn't send Jason to school without a little gift for his teacher. So, I decided to make this pencil box holder. I looked high and low for a pencil box template that I didn't have to pay for. Finally, I decided to make my own. It was easier than I thought. The box hold 20 pencils.
I can't wait for the afternoon to hear all about their big day! In the meantime, to all the mothers home without the kids, enjoy your quite time alone!
Recipe for the Pencil Box: SU Basic Black, Whisper White and Poppy Parade card stock, SU Pawsitively Prints II DS paper, Ribbon, SU Corner Punch, Teacher Treats stamp from Clear Dollar Stamp, Rosey Posie stamp from Whipper Snapper, Copics and Blue Ribbon.
