MCT New Challenge- Pinterest Inspired Project

Hi crafty friends. It is time for another My Creative Time Challenge. Emma is hosting this challenge and the theme is to make a  Pinterest Inspired Project. I hope you will all join in the fun and link up on Emma's blog.

I found this awesome back to school idea on Pinterest and HERE is where you can find the original project. I think it is such a creative idea! They used flowers in their project but my daughter's teacher had asked for a few classroom supplies including new pencils so I thought this would be a cute way to send her some new pencils.

Isn't that fun? We have a gazillion letter magnets, in fact too many to fit in their container, so this was a fun way to use some of the extras. You can get the full instructions on how to make this off the original blog HERE. It is super simple and cute.

I used some pretty chevron ribbon from May Arts for the bow and the cute little dies in the middle are the Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies by My Creative Time and the Back to School stamped sentiment is from Emma's My Teacher Rocks! stamp set.

Make sure to check out Emma's blog and see what everyone has made for this challenge and join in the fun too. I can't wait to see what you all make! Hugs- Glora

Items Used:

My Creative Time Dies- Scallop and Stitched Circle
My Creative Time stamps - My Teacher Rocks!
May Arts - 3/4" Chevron Ribbon
