A Gift for Teacher

A gift of stamps for teacher...

A perfect gift in a pencil box... 

Click here to get a pattern.   And here's some quick how-to's...Cut out all pattern pieces along solid lines, and fold along dotted lines.  Add double stick tape to all the tabs.  To make the pencil, cut out the pencil pattern pieces in different colored papers.  Add a few touches with a black pen (tip of pencil, outlines, lines on the pencil and a few dots):

The box to hold the stamps is easy...just fold up the four sides and use the tabs to form the corners of the box.  For the outer box...tape the first set of tabs along one side of the pencil point.  To make the pencil, glue the yellow and pink pieces onto the main pencil piece: 

Next...continue to adhere the next set of tabs onto the other side of the pencil point: 

Fold in the remaining tabs as shown below (For this last step, I like to put the inner box in before I tape the last side shut...this way you can make sure you get the right fit).  Glue on the last piece of the pencil (there is no pattern piece for this part.  Simply cut a 1/4" wide piece as long as the width of the pencil), glue the finished pencil to the top of the box...  

then simply insert the stamps...

All the stamps used in this project are new minis that have just been released (even the to/from stamp on the top of the box!!).
