Pencil Box

This week at 2 Sisters the challenge theme is to create a school themed project. Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish.  I created this pencil box using Reading Is Fun. 

I used a premade blue plaid cardboard pencil box. I added a strip of light blue cardstock to the top. I then added a thin brown ribbon to the top and bottom of the top of the box. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I punched around the image using a scalloped circle punch and then backed it in the light blue and then again in white. Then added it to the left side of the box top.  Using light green letter stickers I added the word pencils besided the image. I also used the letters and added the alphabet to go around the box. I found some cream colored buttons and added 2 to the top and 1 to the front. This is what it looks like on the front, top and back of the pencil box. The M & N and the Y & Z are on either end of the box.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
