The Seaside Summer collection is all about celebrating fun in the sun! But this time of year, we are also staring down back to school time (which is still fun depending on who you talk to :))! So I decided to see what I could cook up with this bright and cheerful summer that also celebrates back to school and back to the routine!


So, with the help of a really cute cut file from the Lori Whitlock store, I created a fun little pencil treat box. I used 12x12 patterned paper for the base of the pencil and accented with Doodlebug textured cardstock.

To add some texture and interest, I added a tag from the Bits & Pieces set and embellished with some of the flowers shapes that also come in that set, using foam adhesive squares to add some height to the pieces.


I ended up attaching the tag to the lid of the box, which for the pencil shape was the eraser section. While it might seem to make more sense to attach it to the main part of the pencil, I love the unexpected way it behaves when the box is opened. Either would work just fine though!

Finally, I pulled out some Doodlebug staples for the finishing embellishments; some Doodle twine, mini jewels and a mini clothes pin. Originally, I was going to write a hand written message on the tag, but opted for a little sentiment from the Chit Chat set instead. I think I will add a hand written note inside, but using the little clothes pin to attach it behind the tag would be super cute as well.

Now I just need to figure out what to fill this cute treat container with! Any ideas?!  Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs,
