This is my second post for today. This post is will show you how I covered and decorated Steno Pad, Pencils, and Mini Coffee Cups for a teacher's training for 35 Participants.
The theme colors are Real Red, Rich Razzleberry and Pink Pirouette. I used some retired Pretty In Pink card stock.
I used retired and current designer series paper to cover the Steno Pads. I attached the designer series paper to the cover of the pad and then added a decorative piece of Whisper White card stock. I made a template out of an old Steno Pad. With a pencil, I marked each hole with a dot and then punched the dot with a small punch. The last step in creating the card stock was to cut up to the punched hole, cutting to the left of the hole. This way I was able to fit the pieces of card stock in between the spirals. I decorated the Steno Pads for Valentine's Day. I used a variety of dies, punches, ribbons and papers.
The mini coffee cups started out like this. I took one cup apart and made a template. I traced on designer series paper and cut out the cover. I used Sticky Strip to adhere the paper to the cup securely.
I thought about using this design but realized that time was a factor and used Punches instead.
Here is the finial project. I really like the way they turned out.
Fringe pencils are so much fun to make. This picture is to show the detail and the ribbons I used.
This view shows how cute the finished project is.
Here is about half of the pencils. They look like flowers don't they?
All finished and packing the Steno Pads in a Stampin' Up! box. They just fit.
I used my four wheel cart to deliver all the goodies.
All finished the day before the training. I had a lot of fun creating these projects for the teachers training. Using the Valentine's theme added to the fun!
Later this week I will post a tutorial for the Steno Pads in case any of you want or need to make some.
