What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #177

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is well. Today I started working on making my son’s Halloween exchange. The kids used to be able to exchange Halloween cards and candy but we now have a no food or candy policy at his school. So I often make his cards. This year he is in third grade so I stepped it up a notch and made cool pencil holders.

I found some Halloween paper laying around my craft room to use for a boy design and a girl design.

So I managed to finish making all the components and only need to assemble them now which doesn’t take very long.

I used distress ink for the little labels I punched out of white cardstock to coordinate with the pattern papers.

I always manage to make thing more complex than necessary.

I used purple and green for the girls and orange and black for the boys.

I actually enjoyed making the boxes best.

Building more of the components

I used my Cricut to cut out the perfect size accent for the front of the case.

I finally got some use out of my Cricut that seems to be catching dust lately.

The final cases have two pencils and Nicholas is going to make something to put in each for his classmates.

Finished cases.


Front and back shots of the cases.

Well I am ready for some snooping and that’s just what I’m gonna do!

If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!
