Fall Pencil Holder

I recycled a soup can to make a pencil holder for my daughter's colored pencils. I have a Pampered Chef smooth edge can opener that makes it easy to re use old cans and make them into other useful items. I like it because the edges come out smooth instead of sharp or jagged. Who knew that a kitchen utensil could make such a fun crafting and organizational help. I am submitting this container in the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #38. The challenge was to make something other than a card with a fall theme. The PKS face stamps make these Create a Critter leaves so much cuter. I love my face stamps.

I used Peachy Keen Stamps Basic Paperdoll Face parts and Funshine Face Parts.


  1. Such a cute project! Those adorable peachy keen smiling faces make me smile too. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is a fabulous idea, Glora! Great job with this challenge, and what a wonderful decorator piece for your craft room!! So happy you could join us at PKS!


  3. Hi Glora,
    Great idea for the PKS challenge! Your pencil holder is adorable and I love the orange ribbon!
    Have a great day!

  4. Glora,

    What a neat idea!!! It's amazing to think of the items we can alter using the techniques we use on our cards & scrapbook pages!
