Masculine: Pencil Cup Holder

While this is nothing new it is a simple and fast project to do for Father’s day or teacher gifts. Switch it up for a female. I purchased wooden pencil cup from Michael’s, but empty vegetable  cans can also be used. I used a tape measure and measured around the cup holder and added a 1/4″ for an overlay. The height I added nothing. I simply measured it.

Happiness is a Journey Pencil Cup



Stamp Set:          Happiness is a Journey

Ink:                      VersaMark

Paper:                  Any DSP of choice cut  to the measurements of the holder

                               Coordinating Card Stock (I used Winter Green DSP & Chocolate Chip CS)

Accessories:       White  Embossing Powder, Brads, Ribbon and any other embellishments you want




1. Measure the height and the circumference of holder. Add 1/4″ to the circumference measurement for an overlay.


2. Cut DSP and using sticky strip  tape cover holder.


3. On a piece of  coordinating card stock  stamp image in versa mark.


4. Cover image with white embossing powder.


5. Use  a heat tool and hold it 4-5 inches away, heat the image until the powder turns shiny and rises.


6. Carefully tear around image for a really nice irregular look.


7. Add brads to each corner and adhere to cup with sticky strip  tape.


8. Embellish top and bottom of holder with ribbon.
