Pencil me in :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a little pencil/pen tin I made for a co-worker :) 

She came to me with these AMAZING wrapping papers that she found in her closet!! She thinks they were either from her Mom or her Aunt's Bridal or Wedding shower! :) 


Aren't they AWESOME?!?!?!?!? :)






She asked me to make her a Pencil Holder for her desk ... I asked her which paper she preferred, and she chose the one with the girls on it :) 

So I had a little aluminum tin from Target's dollar spot ...spray painted it a vintage pink color, and started adding some wrapping papers!! :) 


****Ohhhhh and please forgive the bad photos ... I worked on this late into the night after work, and then had to take photos before I went to work in the morning, when the sun wasn't quite fully up :)   ****

 


I added a Prima flower that Helen had sent me  -- and some vintage lace I had around :)

 



I also decorated the inside :) 

 



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
