My daughter has a tan/black color scheme in her sitting area, so I used brown(s) for my colors. I used Michael Strong stamps Cloisonne Nesting Squares and the Punch and Spell Alphabet.
This takes 5 pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock. Below is the tutorial I watched to create this pencil holder. I used Brushed Corduroy Ranger Distress Ink on this project, and on the letters, embossed it with Clear Distress EP.
I have embedded the video- it is in Spanish....... I have a few tips below to help with the folding.
I measured the cardstock- a true 12 x 12. Score at 4" and 8". If it is NOT 12 x 12, just divide the width x's 3 when you score for the first step.
Turn the cardstock and score at 6" for the second side.
Next, I scored from where the 6" score crosses the 4" score from the centers to the points. Here is how I did this:
This is the point that was a little hard for me. Wth the paper folded in half, you will take each corner and bring it over to the far left score line, as shown in the next 2 pictures.
My last tip is in regards to the side flaps at the end.
Once complete, fill it up with your "Things and Stuff". I was surprised how sturdy this is!
