Today I’m doing a quick walkthrough of how I made these adorable pencil embellishments. I love them, they’re short and chunky and super cute (kinda’ like me! LOL).
First, I chose scraps to start with. In this case, I was making these pencils as part of a kit, so I chose scraps either directly from the kit, or that matched and coordinated with the papers I had in the kit.
Next, I trimmed the scraps to .75″ and cut similar sized strips out of kraft cardstock to create the wood element of the pencils. At this point, I also matched up some strips and layered them to create multicolored pencils.
Next, I trimmed the ends of the colored strips with scallop deco scissors. I did the same thing with some white strips of paper, then layered them on top of the kraft strips, which I simply cut into a point! I used tiny matching scraps for the pencil leads. :)
For a few of them, I trimmed some gold glitter washi and pink cardstock scraps to become erasers. For all of them, I used my smallest corner rounder to round off the bottoms.
