This week's challenge on our CropStop Challenge Blog is to create something with a "Back to School" theme. I found a great wooden pencil box at a local craft store and decided to alter it for our grandsons to keep at their homework table! It is much larger than it appears, so I'm sure it will hold both of their pencils and pens.
House Rules...Homework first!I made the books with Vintaj Journal Page and Vintaj Blank Rectangle natural brass embellishments by Sizzix.
The tag is made using the Spellbinder Eighteen Label die. I used the same size die for the tag and the matting. The mat is split and moved slightly to mat the tag.
I used the Cuttlebug Measure to Measure Embossing Set to emboss the lower edge of the tag.
I inked all of the edges with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. The embossing on the tag is inked with Close To My Heart Cranberry ink. The pocketwatch is a button embellishment.
