Yesterday my phone rang early, early in the morning and I got an emergency call to come in a sub!  Day 3 for a bunch of first graders – it turned out to be a wonderful day but I didn’t get to post here as planned.  sigh…

This is a wonderful project the A Muse Studio designers came up with this month and I thought it would be perfect to have in my purse for some of the teachers or to hand out to some darling new students!

It’s using some Spotlight Specials and here’s how easy it is to make:

Supplies:  Eat Your Veggies, Eucalyptus/Vanilla cardstock, Holiday Assortment Washi tape, What’s Up die set (or you can use a circle/oval die), Wasbi ribbon and Eucalyptus ink.


  1. Cut Eucalyptus cardstock measuring 3 1/2 by 7 and then score at 1 1/2 and 3 (long ways).
  2. Cut semi circle at top of middle section.
  3. Add strips of Washi tape (7 in long) down the length to decorate.  You can cut washi tape with a paper trimmer.
  4. Place super stick tape on tab and base of pencil case and fold shut.
  5. Die cut speech bubble from vanilla scrap.
  6. Cover “I made this” portion of sentiment with scrap of washi tape and ink up “for you” portion only.  Remove washi tape!
  7. Stamp sentiment on die cut and punch small hole at top.  Ink edges with ink.
  8. Tie with Wasbi ribbon.

Please join in on my Back to School Amusing Challenge this week!!  We’d love to have you participate and see what you create!!

aacckk!  The phone just rang again – it seems I have to go back in to school again today…posted just in the nick of time!  Enjoy your day! 🙂
