Back to School Pencil Card

My God Son is going to be starting Kindergarten this year and I wanted to get him a little gift to start his elementary days off right.  I ran to the store a picked up a few school supplies and fun munchies for his lunch box.  I purchased a cute bag to place the items in and raced home a make a card to go with the gift!  I have to say this is definitely a 10 Minute DIY Project!   This card can be used all through the school year as well for different activities such as Teacher Appreciation Day, Valentine’s Cards, etc.


What you will need:

The first thing I did was cut out shaped to create a pencil.  You will need two rectangle (different sizes), two triangles (different sizes), and a shape that looks like a pencil eraser. (Not sure what this shape is called.) I choose colors that represented the traditional number two pencil.  The color can be customized to your or your student’s preference.

Once, you have your shapes you will need a glue stick to create your pencil. Start by gluing the eraser shape to the larger rectangle! Next, I glued the largest triangle to the opposite end that I glued the eraser shaped piece to.  Then, glue the smaller triangle on the large triangle to create a tip.

Last, I added my rectangle piece of tin foil in between the eraser shape and the largest triangle.
