Simple Simon

I just finished up with these projects using the new Simple Simon collection from Piggy Tales... still working on my layout with this line which I'll share another time!

Be sure to check out the Piggy Tales blog for a look at other inspiration and ideas!

Here's my school set:

A little info on the pencil bouquet..
The pencil bouquet was so fun to make. I used rubons on some of the pencils and wrapped others with patterned paper. I also tied some chipboard elements around a few of the pencils. The bouquet is made from a styrofoam cone I bought at the craft store. I used scotch mounting tape around the cone then wrapped the cone with patterned papers. Stick in your pencils. Wrap strips of patterned papers around a pencil to twirl and add at the bottom of your cone where the pencils have been inserted. tfl!
