I’m ever wanting to create different birthday gifts for friend’s children. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn’t. This week everything just seemed to come together and I am really excited with how it turned out.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these pencil rolls ever since I first came across them. It’s a rare thing when I actually make something that turns out perfectly and without mistakes and this was no exception. I screwed up the measurements on the inside, but hey it’s the thought that counts right? And I’ll do better next time! There are a ton of tutorials out there, but I really didn’t use one. I just kind of made it up, that’s most likely why the measurements were all screwed up!
I also covered this sketch book for our little friend too. This turned out really well and I love it! All that is left is to stamp his name on the cover, but I’ve got to search for some black ink.
