Papertrey Ink came out with this really fun Paper Pencils Adhesive Label Pad a few months ago, and I knew it would be perfect for making personalized pencils for my students for the first day of school! They are just decorative labels that wrap around a regular pencil, and there is a spot near the top for stamping something. For most kids, I stamped their initials with the PTI Pencilgrams Mini Stamp Set. I had started to try stamping out their full names with the PTI Simple Alphabet set, but I found it tricky to line up the letters.
I made the card using the My Creative Time Stitched Journal Card and punched the holes for the pencil with the PTI Write Stuff Holders Die. Then I added a little apple made with PTI's Back to School stamps and dies and a sentiment from MCT's Write On.
