{Classroom Halloween Treats}

Well...not really treats I guess.
Won't they be getting enough junk to rot their teeth and minds right around this time of year? :)
So for my daughter's first grade class, we opted for a Halloween pencil instead...and possibly a Halloween fruit roll-up.
I picked up the pencils on the Dollar Spot at Target. I found something similar to this idea years ago, and just made it my own.
It's very simple, but you do need a few tools of the trade. How it comes out though is all up to you!

I cut the base rectangle with a Nestie. I used a slit punch (about $6 and although it's not used often, it's really handy when you do need it!) and put a slit in each short side of the rectangle. These are the slits where the pencil will go.
I hope you you can see them! It's a little tough on the black.
Then I took a favorite old Stampin' Up Halloween set, stamped 20 images, and punched them out with a circle punch. I punched a background for those images with a scallop circle punch. (Are you tired of hearing the word 'punch' at this point?)

Adhere your stamped (or printed) images to the pencil holder rectangle and you're all done.
I know they will get thrown away and crushed, so I didn't add ribbon. I've learned when making papercrafts for kids, it's best to pull back a little so you don't burst into tears when they destroy your pretty project! :)
Just a little classroom 'treat' to pass out at the Harvest Party, and they take very little time to make.
If you have questions, let me know!
(I can't wait until Halloween!!)
Take care,
