Posh Pencil Containers...

Well the first week has come and gone and I believe that I have recovered!! Following up the first week with a 3 day weekend is just perfection.  In my last bit of to-do's before school actually started, I decided to glitter up my classroom pencil containers.  I was so happy that Misty at 3rd Grade's a Hoot created a fab pencil freebie using the adorable pencil graphics from Melonheadz! I didn't want to purchase any new containers so I hunted around for a few that would fit my vision. I found a couple of decorative cans I had purchased at Michael's for my daughter's painting party.

The supplies...2 sheets 12x12 scrapbook paper, 2 medium plastic paint cans from Michael's, printed fab pencil freebie labels, scissors, and tape (not pictured)

I trimmed down the scrapbook paper to the height of the cans and glued the label.

I fit the paper to the inside of the can (you kind of have to shove it in there!) and attached a few pieces of tape inside.  My paper left a gap, but I just used some of the scrap that I had cut off to fill the space.

Tadaaa!! They are just what I wanted!

Check them out next to a few adorable classroom additions (I found them at a candy store in Destin!) that I found this summer...

Now on to week two!!! Sending gobs of glitter and giggles your way...
