Quick and Easy Pretty Pencils Stocking Fillers

Today I have a quick and easy stocking filler project.  While I was going through my cello bags I found some 2″ x 8″ cello bags that I thought would be perfect for a few pencils and a bit of simple decoration.  I also found a few 1″ cello bags that were retired stock and used these up too.

 

In my Inspiration box I had several packs of pencils that I hadn’t even opened.   I put 2 of the pencils in the 1″ cello bags and decorated them with a pretty little bow and added a Reindeer tag (Seasonal Chums stamp set and dies).

 

For the 2″ Cello bags I added a 1-7/8″x 7-7/8″ strip of Emerald Envy cardstock and added 5 pencils.  I sealed the top of the bag with some silver glitter washi tape that I had and added an Emerald Envy bow.

You could make these for someone’s Birthday or to sell at Craft Fairs so with that in mind I thought the A Little Gift For You would be perfect.  I layered the sentiment onto a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper to match the washi tape.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed todays project.  I have worked out the approximate cost of making 4 of these, you will have cardstock and ribbon left over.  The more you make the cheaper the unit price will be.

Cost of making four 2″ x 8″ cello bags

4 x Cello Bags = 22p
Pack of 20 Pencils = £1
Cardstock = approx. 50p
Ribbon = 60p
Total Cost for 4 = £2.32
