Quirky Crafts Challenge 19- anything but a card

Caro's challenge this time, sponsored by Robyns Fetish once more. Anything but a card she said! I am not really into the old altered art scene...so I didn't have some wonderful old relic laying around to be made over...except me that is! SO....what to do????

I decided I would make something from scratch, and as everyone is talking and thinking about kids going back to school (although mine are way past this stage!) I decided a pen/pencil box would be nice. I dug out some old mount board scraps...you know those little bits that get left from boxes and frame etc, those bits that are just a tincy bit too big to feel good about throwing them away. I knew they would come in handy for something one day, if I kept them long enough.This is what I made

I covered the mount board with some printed denim look paper. Painted the inside with H2O paints. Cut a cuttlebug die buckle to go on the blue seam binding type ribbon, and then coloured the images kindly donated by Robyns Fetish, our sponsors this challenge. Couldn't resist a bit of grafitti too. Voila!
