I've been doing all sorts of paper crafting for the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday and thought I'd share this adorable Decorated Valentine's Pencil with all of you. It's simple to make and requires just a few supplies. These would be great to hand out to your child's classmates at school!
You'll need the following supplies from Stampin' Up! to make these Decorated Valentine's Pencils
- Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack
- Brights 8-1/2" X 11" Card Stock
- You Plus Me Stamp Set
- Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape
- Paper Trimmer
- 2" Circle Punch
- Craft Glue Stick (buy anywhere)
- Razor Knife (buy anywhere)
I used the red hearts on white paper as well as plain red paper for this project. You will start by punching out a 2" circle using each of the sheets of paper. Glue these together. Next, using the "twitterpated" stamp, apply black ink and stamp onto the red paper.
Cut out the stamped "twitterpated" piece using your paper trimmer. Then glue it int the middle of the red/white heart side of your paper circle.
You will then make a slice above and below the "twitterpated" area of your paper circle using the razor knife. Make sure it's big enough for the pencil to fit through.
Next, you'll wrap your pencil in washi tape, cutting off any excess at the end.
And that's it. You have now turned an ordinary pencil into a beautiful little favor for Valentine's Day!
