DIY Stationery - Back to School Project - Pencil Box
It’s a time of year, and as a parent, I cycle through a range of emotions:

  • excitement (Mama’s gettin’ some time to herself!)
  • sadness (summer is ending and Mama will miss her babies)
  • anxiety (Mama’s baby is off to KG!)
  • repeat

Do you Mamas feel the same way? Will a Silhouette Back to School Deal help? Oh yes it will. Scroll on down to get the details and don’t forget to use MARITZA as the promo code. Now, how about a little pencil box project to get you inspired? These boxes I created are made with a  really thick cardstock (chipboard is always a great option) and printable silver foil (which is also part of this awesome bundle)


The What

  • Silhouette CAMEO
  • Silhouette Studio
  • CAMEO light hold cutting mat
  • Glue
  • Cardstock (or Chipboard)
  • Printable Silver Foil

The How

Step 1: In Silhouette Studio, I created the shapes and dashed lines below with standard pencil measurements in mind

Step 2: By using the Weld, Replicate and Make Compound Path tools I created the box for the pencils (the dashed lines are fold lines)

Step 5: I then used text for the monogram, and created a frame with the offset tool on the sleeve’s window

I folded at the dashed lines, and assembled these cute boxes – perfect for the Big and Small students who are off to school soon!
