Sending Love Altered Pencil (and Treat!) Holder

The Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is so gorgeous -- I love the sparkles on it!  And, I know my friend Jana loves this paper, too, so when I saw a pencil holder at my favorite dollar spot, I just knew what I would do to make a thank you gift for her hosting a workshop with me!  Here's the finished project:

I attached the designer paper with sticky strip, leaving about an inch of paper hanging off each end of the pencil holder.  Then, I snipped the paper at the ends, and used to Sticky Strip to attach that the paper to the inside and bottom of the pencil holder.  I covered the bottom with a piece of Real Red cardstock, cut in a circle.  Then, I attached some of the luscious new Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon around the top and lining the top of the inside of the pencil holder!

Here's another shot, so you can see more of the beautiful flowers!

I filled the inside with chocolates in a cello bag, and make a tag for the bag (used the fun new Sale-a-Bration Whimsical Words set on it, plus some punched flowers, and a rhinestone brad for some bling!).  The top of the cello bag is decorated with pink grosgrain ribbon -- attached with Sticky Strip!  Got the idea when looking through the Idea Book and Catalog for about the millionth time -- in case you missed it like I did the first few times through, you can check out the sample on the top of page 42!  You could do this with any type of ribbon -- in fact, the Satin Ribbon would look luscious, too!!!  Anyway, back to the photos!

Please visit my online store to check out more of -- and order -- this wonderful Designer Paper and the other wonderful new products in the Occasions Mini!  And, don't forget, for every $50 in merchandise, you get to choose a free product from the Sale-a-Bration catalog!!!   Plus, if you are interested in purchasing the beautiful new 5/8" Satin Ribbons -- stayed tuned for details on a ribbon share I am putting together!

And, I'm still working on finishing up the projects I showed you a peek of last time . . . will be able to show you one of the finished projects tomorrow, though!  Be sure to check back then!
