{srm-pencil frame}

SRM is now carrying pencils for special occasions! Currently Pencil Sentiments for Graduation, Birthdays and July 4th are available!  My project is up on the blog today!  I got to play with the Graduation pencils.  Lucky me, because I have a 2013 Grad in the house! 
I picked up an unfinished wood frame at Michaels.  I bought a couple boxes of #2 pencils at the dollar store.  I used Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue to adhere them and not one pencil came off when my neighbor used his fancy saw to trim it for me! That stuff is awesome!  :)  I should have taken a before picture-it looked very hap-hazard!

I added a grosgrain ribbon around the outer edge of the frame and added the sentiments from the Graduation Stickers by the Dozen onto it.
A couple dollars and an hour and you have a great table topper for your grad!
Happy Monday, friends!
