1 + 2 = Stickles Blog Hop

Welcome to the 1 + 2 = Stickles Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!

Back to school is just around the corner, and what better way to start off the school year then with a bit of sparkle?! Today the design team is showcasing all sorts of glittery back to school projects that kiddos and teachers will love!

If you've come from Karen N.'s blog, you're in the right place! If you have just come across the hop and would like to start from the beginning, please visit All that Stickles.

For my project, I made...

What every teacher needs, a good grade and a bad grade pen holder.

I've was never a "A" student so there were always red pen marks on my papers.  I'm glad that my daughter is the complete opposite of me.  

I used frozen juice cans that I painted black.  But the twist to my pen holders are I used school supplies to make it.  I die cut the flowers out of post it notepads and loose leaf paper.  I used Elmer's masking tape for the top, those little sticker circles for the paper, and paper clips for the stars and skulls stickers.  I used the brand new Cranberry and True Blue stickles for my letters and to accent the flowers, I used Glam Pink, Orange Peel, Green, Firefly, and Yellow.

I hope you enjoyed my blog hop project and I hope you become a follower of my blog.
