Pencil Holder Project - a true story!

I went on vacation and I bought this...


and while reading I saw this ....


and I loved it so I showed her...


And it made her happy.

And she thought it would be great for her art pencils so we showed him...

 my awesome brother.

And then we roasted marshmallows and forgot all about it until our last night of our vacation when he gave us these....


And we were happy!  

He had remembered when we had forgotten because that's how he is
... he's a good guy!  

And when we got home from vacation we had fun doing this ....


We measured and marked our paper.  Then we cut it out along the line and found this in our craft bin....


And when they dried they looked like this ....


And then we filled them up ...


and now we have two really cute pencil holders ....


And we are VERY HAPPY!

I saw that in the magazine too and thought they were awesome. Yours turned out great! I would love one of those myself - too bad my hubby isn't as skilled as yours with woodworking. LOL
