So happy to be blog hopping with guest designer Lily Criswell! Our amazingly talented guest is only 9 years old and already a seasoned designer! Play along and have a chance to win Tombow product! If you just came from Jennie’s blog, you are on the right track! If not you may want to start at the Tombow Blog. It’s also back to school time so Mom’s can celebrate by crafting this elegant pencil box – not for the children, it’s for you!
I started by re-purposing a box I had. With some book pages and Tombow’s Aqua Liquid Glue I decoupaged on the sides and on the inside. Aqua Glue is a amazing glue for this purpose, and the build in applicator makes it mess free! I simply cut book pages to fit the sides and applied an layer of Aqua to attach. I also brushed on a coat of Aqua on top to give it a nice matte finish. Do you see the book page pencil? Yes, Aqua worked perfectly to cover the pencil as well!
I also added book pages on the inside – I didn’t worry about tears and wrinkles as I liked the distressed look! The ribbon handle and front label embellishment were added using Power Tabs for a strong, lasting hold. When dry I filled it with my essentials; Tombow Correction Tape, Xtreme Adhesive, Drawing Pencils and a Fudenosuke Brush Pen. Now I’m all set to mark my fridge calendar with upcoming events!
Now to win a package of Soft Primary Irojiten Colored Pencils and Xtreme Adhesive please comment on all the Design Team’s projects as well as liking the TombowUSA Facebook page! Your next stop is Lily’s blog to see what she has created for you!
