Cards with pencil toppers – project for Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone, I’m up on the Creative Embellishments Blog this week with a couple of simple cards for children. Two of my kiddos are in cyber school and I’m always looking for different ways to reward and encourage them for a job well done and sometimes, just to reward their efforts. So quite a while back, I special requested these title pieces in order to use them for my own children and Nicolle was happy to oblige. She totally rocks! 😀 Did you know that if there’s something you have in mind, but do not find it in the store, a quick email to Nicolle could result in having it created for you? Yeah…she’s awesome that way. ;-D

Anyway, I’d originally intended them for tags they could display by their computers like ribbons, but at the last minute, I decided to make these interactive cards, with a reward attached. I’m all about simple these days since I’ve taken on a little more than I can chew for the moment, but I’ll adjust. lol So these cards, could be created with more layers, details, and elements, but I went with simplicity. Here they are assembled:

This is with the toppers removed from the cards. As you can see, I just punched two holes to string the ribbon, or in my case tulle, through.

Here’s how the topper looks attached to a pencil. Tip: If you find that it slides down your pencil, just wrap a small rubber band around the the end of the pencil as a stopper. 😀

TFL!
