For the desk

Ever since I saw these paper mache pencil boxes, I wanted them for our stores. They didn't make it in time to use for end-of-school year teacher's gifts last May, but they're here now! These boxes would be great for your boss or your kid's teachers' holiday gifts.

At first, I was looking for some masculine print paper and then I thought about it..,hey, there are many  female bosses, too! So, here's what I came up with. Added some paper, ribbon and stickers. It's sweet, simple and useful, too. Changing the papers and embellishments will give it different looks.

You can fill the inside with things other than pens like gift cards, candy, movie tickets or even make it into a emergency kit with band-aids, mini sewing kit and chocolate (very important for emergencies!)

Just a reminder, Bosses' Day is October 16th which happens to be a Saturday this year. I don't get it, most people won't be working so they won't see their boss...Ok, maybe I do get it, for some anyway, LOL! For me, I'm Lucky, I love my job and all of my bosses' are great!

But anyway,  Thank you for stopping by today and hope you all have a great week! Don't forget to check the Oct. 2 post, so you can join the 1st Birthday Giveaway!

  2. I think the pencil box looks great. I haven't seen these blank boxes at the store but I'm going to look for them now. Isn't it funny how we all see different things at Ben Franklin Crafts and have different ideas for how to us them?

  3. Awesome project Joy. Love the dp too and the pens are cute with the pretty flowers.

  4. Love the decorated box, what a great idea! Hope I can still find some of these in the store.
