JustRite Stampers Pencil Box

Hurray! I finally got around to doing a project with my new JustRite Stampers. I'm sure you've all seen the craze out there for these. I just started off with the basic set that I saw on Lauren's blog and I ordered them from All That Scraps. Now that I've actually used it, I think I would really like the tiny letter set and all the additions of course :)

I have wanted to make a pencil box for a while now, but school came and went and now its almost here again. JustRite Stampers is also having a contest (just go check their blog) so I was excited to combine the two. So, I didn't want to make Hunter's pencil box all foofoo so I kept it pretty basic. Their school colors are black, red, and white.

Since I wanted to use the same font for the word "pencils", all I did was use a pair of tweezers to hold my small individual letters and stamped them on scrap paper. It was super easy and no worry since all I wanted to do was punch the letters out anyway.
Sorry about the second picture. The white sides of the box totally blended in with the background, but they are there :)

Let me know if a tutorial is in order. It was really very simple, but I won't be home to do one for a week or so.

Thanks for stopping and have a great day.



Recipe:
Cardstock: Black, Cranberry (CTMH), GP White
