teacher's name pencil shadow box

This cute teacher name shadow box would be extra special with your own school pencils or special pencils from your students!
Step 1

Cut an 8" [20.3 cm] x 10" [25.4 cm] piece of the black cardstock.

Step 2

Sharpen all 24 pencils to desired lengths.

Step 3

Lay one pencil at the bottom left edge of the black cardstock.

Step 4

Hot glue a pencil next to the pencil in Step 3. Continue gluing pencils, side by side, across your shadow box until you have all 24 pencils attached.

Step 5

Design and cut a teacher's name as desired from vinyl with your Cricut.
TIP: For the listed shadow box, size the name to 2½" [6.4 cm] x 6" [15.2 cm].

Step 6

Weed the vinyl from around and within the name, then place a piece of the transfer paper on top of the weeded vinyl.

Step 7

Using the transfer tape, place the cut vinyl onto the black cardstock, as shown. Burnish over the back of your transfer tape, then remove the transfer tape. Smooth out the vinyl.

Step 8

Place finished cardstock into the shadow box.
