Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Stampin’ Up Customer Thank You Wrapped Pencils
Well today’s project isn’t what I’d originally planned. Well it is for the blog post, but it wasn’t the gift I’d planned for March at all. I’d started the prep for a particular gift and then had a flash of inspiration after a conversation with my eldest son and that spawned the idea of pencils with my website on!
He’d said about ‘useful’ gifts in terms of notebooks, scissor charms, stationery etc and it occurred to me that I’d never sent out any writing tools in the 3 years I’ve been making gifts! Well I was on a mission then to do something and really, before I lost my train of thought, I was off and getting pencils specially made!
I went with Silver because its an easy colour to mix with and I knew I wanted to use our Paper Basics supplies, but really almost until I finished them off a few weeks ago before I went on holiday, I was still unsure about the finished decoration….
I had a lovely time with pretty much all my family getting involved. Jacob put the pencils into their sleeves for me, Oliver kept me company while I punched my tags and flags (he was more into the playdoh on the table, but it was nice companionship!) and then I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon with my Mum when I sat and beribboned them all!
And for the other members of the family, well Luke took a few off me and then did a giveaway to his classmates. Bless them, I think because I’m on YouTube they think Luke has a famous Mum. I’m hardly Stampy, but I do get their enthusiasm! Oh and Jack? Well aside from the idea initially, he dominated the TV one night for half an hour longer than he should have done, forcing me to step away from the exploits of Austin and Ally and into my office where I sat and finished them all. 4 days ahead of schedule!
So I hope you like them all, these are just a few of them, but they are all gorgeous!
