For the kids! Heath Bar inspired pencil boxes.

ETA: You can find the directions for this at this post HERE.

Still working on my samples for this week's Latenightstamper's challenge to create a project using the colors that you find in a candy bar. I love the colors on this Heath bar and I love the taste of them even more! I needed to make something for the kids in my son's class for Halloween and didn't want to give too much candy so I made these pencil boxes and put in four pixie stick, a Halloween pencil and a Halloween stencil.

The pencil boxes are so easy to make. You start with a 3 and 1/2 inch by 12 piece of card stock. With the 12 inch side on top you will sore at 1/2- 8 and 8 and 1/2. Then turn the card stock so the 3 and 1/2 inch side is on top and score at 1/2 from both sides. I will make a tutorial if there is interest.

Stamps: none--I used the MDS
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip
Ink: none
Other: computer, MDS ribbon, scoring blade, Halloween pencils, pixie sticks, Halloween stencils.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are having a fabulously blessed day!
