Play Date Pens and Pencils Holder

Designed By: Shelby Kahalekulu-Nakama September 2010
This pens and pencils holder is sure to be a “hoot” in the office.

Instructions Step 1 Using 3/16” Corner Small punch, round corners of the nine pieces of 4” x 4” Play Date Designer Series Paper (DSP). Step 2 Using an Anywhere Glue Stick, adhere two pieces of 4” x 4” Play Date DSP to the front and back sides of four chipboard coasters. Adhere only one piece of 4” x 4” Play Date DSP to one side of the fifth chipboard coaster. Using Paper Snips, trim excess DSP hanging off the sides of coasters. Note: Be sure that the DSP pieces are well adhered to the coasters, especially along the edges of the coasters. Step 3 Using the Sanding Block, smooth the edges of the coasters on the sides that have DSP. Note: Sanding gives the edges a distressed appearance, and it also makes the DSP and coasters look as if it were one piece all along, rather than separate pieces. The sanding also removes any excess glue that has seeped over the coasters’ edges. www.CraftProjectCentral.com Email:ContactUs@craftprojectcentral.com Artwork © Stampin’ Up!

Step 3 Step 4 Using the Crop-a-Dile, punch a 3/16” hole at the right and left corners of one edge of the coasters that are covered in DSP on both sides. The circles should be punched approximately 1/4” in from the top and side edges of each coaster.

Step 4 Step 5 Using Crystal Effects, adhere a coaster that is completely covered in DSP to the coaster that is covered only on one side, making sure that the side with the DSP is on the outside to form the holder bottom and also making sure that the coaster edges are flush with each other so the holder bottom is smooth. Continue to do this until you have four sides up on your holder. Note: You only need a thin line of Crystal Effects, and you will need to hold the coasters together for 30 seconds to a minute to ensure adherence. www.CraftProjectCentral.com Email:ContactUs@craftprojectcentral.com Artwork © Stampin’ Up!

Step 5 Step 6 Using the 6” pieces of Real Red 1/4” grosgrain ribbon, tie a square knot through each corner of the holder sides. Then, trim ribbon edges.

Step 6 Step 7 Stamp the word “pens” using the Sweet Shoppe Lower Alphabet stamp set, acrylic block H and Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin’ Pad towards the bottom of a 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” Whisper White card stock piece. Stamp the word “pencils” by first stamping “pencil” using acrylic block H towards the bottom of the other 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” Whisper White card stock piece. Then, stamp the letter “s” using acrylic block A at the end of “pencil.” Note: Though “pencils” fits on acrylic block H, when stamped, it will not fit on 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” Whisper White card stock piece, unless the letter “s” is stamped separately. www.CraftProjectCentral.com Email:ContactUs@craftprojectcentral.com Artwork © Stampin’ Up!

Step 8 Using SNAIL adhesive, adhere each 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” Whisper White card stock piece onto the center of each 3” x 3” Play Date DSP piece. Then, adhere to the center of two holder sides opposite of each other. Step 9 Using Two-Step Owl Extra-Large punch, punch two bodies from the scrap pieces of Chocolate Chip card stock, punch two chests from the scrap pieces of Play Date DSP, punch two hearts from the scrap piece of Real Red card stock, punch four of the large circles on the punch from the scrap piece of Crumb Cake card stock, punch four of the medium circles on the punch from the scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and then punch four of the small circles on the punch from the scrap pieces of Chocolate Chip card stock. Step 10 Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere punched pieces to form your two owls. Then, using a Stampin’ Dimensional per owl, adhere an owl above the stamped words, “pens” and “pencils.”
