3D Pencil...Back 2 School

Good morning! We don't start school here until after Labor Day, but I saw this adorable 3D pencil in the Silhouette store and thought it would be perfect to put some treats in for the kids when they do start!
The pencil box is # 45533 and comes sized to fit a 12x12 mat. I cut it in white and cut the tip black, then I just cut some strips if yellow to adhere to all of the panels.
I designed the tag using a tag that came with the Silhouette software and used a faux stitch technique and used the "school" with apples (# 20480) and sized it to fit the tag, I used the pattern fill feature for the letters in a black and white polka dot and filled the apples red with green stem. I typed the "back to" using 'blue highway D type' font and filled it with color. I used the print and cut feature! The tag measures 2.75x1.57 inches. I cut a 1 inch circle and stamped the sentiment 'you make me proud' using a Cardztv stamp from the "It's All About You" set! I used a scallop punch in red and mounted the circle and adhered it to the tag!
I tied red ribbon around the box and used a double layer of black and white twine to tie the tag on.
I had so much fun creating this project and I think my kids and nieces will just love it!
I am entering this in the Cardztv "back to school" challenge! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
