Guest Post - Decorated pen holder by Angela Drummond

This is the last week for our Guest blogger Angela and she is going out in style with a wonderful project using the Autumn Poppy stamp set.

  • I made the sketch pen holder using a cutting file I found on the Silhouette site but felt it was a little too plain, so I set about decorating it with the stamp set. 
  • I stamped the 2 toadstools first and then made a mask for them with a post it note and stamped the other 2 sets of toadstools either side with the mask in place.
  • Next I coloured all the images using coloured pencils, then cut them out and stuck them on the side of the box using a wet adhesive.
  • I cut the fairy using my new toy (Silhouette Cameo) and finally added some die cut leaves to give extra dimension to the project.

If you don't own a Silhouette, then you could adapt this project to use with an MDF pencil box.
