Craft It Up & Link It Up #12

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party!!!

This linky party theme is
ANY type of project as long as it has to do with school. You could use items such as apples, crayons, rulers, bus, teacher, kids, lunchboxes, altered notebook etc

Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party here. I will designate a theme and invite you to share projects you've made!!

And don't forget about the prizes! Every linky party will have a sponsor and a winner, plus a top 3! The winner will be announced on a semi-weekly basis. The more times you link up, the more chances you have to win!! Sponsors will be announced at the beginning of every linky party.

If you make the Top 3 you will also be invited to be a guest designer on an upcoming linky party!!

I decided to recycle a veggie can and make my girls teacher a gift. I thought a pencil holder for her desk would be the perfect thing. It was really quick and simple. I  took an empty can, gently peeled off the label so I could use it as a template. I cut out my decorative paper and glued it down. Added an owl from KaDoodle Bug Designs Artistic Owls, raffia, button and pencils. It was that simple.

  2. I'm a bit confused by entries #8-10 as to what they have to do with back to school.
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

    1. I deleted them Melissa as they had nothing to do with back to school and really old posts.

    2. TY. That's what I thought; as in they had nothing to do w/ back to school & were backlinked also.
