Copic/Pencil Holder...using FabScraps Products....

Hi everyone!!

It's Tarrah here with you today! I wanted to create a different project this month, rather than create my usual layouts that I always create, I decided to create a pencil holder from a tin is how I created it...

Firstly I got some supplies together including a washed
 out tin can with the outside sticker peeled off also...

FabScraps products used:

Apply a generous amount of X-Press It Triple Tac to all
 the outside of the tin can using a paint brush....carefully adhere
 the FabScraps Christmas Star Sparkles paper white the Triple Tac is wet.  

cut two strips measuring approximately 1 inch x 8 inches.

Scallop the edges of the Milkshake Strawberry strips using a border punch

Using some X-Press It Double Sided Tape, adhere one 
of these pieces with some around the very
 top of the tin can with the scallops pointing down..

Adhere the other piece to the bottom of the
 can with the scallops pointing upwards...

Trim a strip of paper from the 
measuring approximately 2 inches x 8 inches,
adhere this piece around the middle of the can

Take a large rose from the FabScraps Blush Roses and
 a slightly smaller one from the Sepia Roses also get 4 of the
 leaves from the Delicate Green Roses pack also...

Assemble a flower embellishment using the two roses, 
once you add the metal flower and brad, curve the edges
of the petals for more definition.  

Tuck the leaves behind the flower and you
 have a lovely embellishment ready for any project... 

Finally adhere the flower embellishment to the centre
 of the tin can overlapping the Milkshake Strawberry strip of paper

This is the finished project... 

it is perfect to hold some craft tools, pencils, Copics,
whatever you choose!!

See how easy it was to create something useful and pretty all at once!!
I hope you use your X-Press It adhesives and FabScraps products for your next project!
Thanks so much for stopping by the X-Press It blog today...take care...
