Pen box using stampin up Stampin’ Up! supplies

pen gift 1   pen gift 2

Good morning.

Well we are half way through the week whoop whoop!!! I thought i would do a project thats not chocolate or sweets hehe!

Its a pen box.  I had these two new pens sat on my desk and i wondered what to do with them if anything at all.  So i looked at them for a few days then ignored them for a few more, then came up with a nice little box for them.  Each box holds one pen which is ideal for a craft fair or to go with something like a notebook.

I do have a couple more projects which are stationary/organising based and not sweetie based, so you will need to keep checking here when i publish them.  For the sentiment i used the Moon Lake stamp set and the whole sentiment reads “nature evokes the imagination” well as there wasn’t anything “nature” like about this i stamped it out then just used the word window to punch out “imagination” which i thought was ideal. My daughter is going onto university this year where she will be studying English and American studies and shes always writing so it was that really that helped with the inspiration of this project.
