May Arts / Lawn Fawn Blog Hop

May Arts and Lawn Fawn are celebrating another week of fun inspiration and giveaways.

Summer's in full swing but it will be back to school time before we know it!

I started thinking ahead with a cute pencil box for those brand new pencils.  Going back to school is much more fun when the munchkins have fun things to take to school with them.

Isn't this fun?  I think I'm addicted to this May Arts Orange Wired Chevron.  I just love the bright color and how easy it is to work with.   I used a cut file from the Cutting Café (it comes in PDF form if you don't have an electronic cutter) for the box. 

After that, it was all fun with pretty papers from Lawn Fawn's Dewey Decimal Collection and Lucky Stars Stamp set.

The paper didn't have any stars on it, so I just grabbed my favorite Hero Arts Chalk Ink pads and added some using the star stamps in the Lucky Stars set.

To create my shooting stars, I stapled three pieces of May Arts Wired Chevron together, then wound them around a pencil.  I die cut some stars with Spellbinders dies then covered them with Stickles.  A bit hot glue holds them securely to the ribbon.
A strip of the May Arts Wired Chevron atttached with Scor-Tape adds bold color and texture to the box sides and top.

I hope you've enjoyed my project.
