I said I wasn't going to add the silver band to the pencils. But I decided that the pencils would look a lot cuter with the silver band.
So I glued a thin piece silver between the yellow and pink papers. It really didn't take that long.
I looked all over Michael's craft store, Party City and Target for some thin sliver tape. I could not find any. So I ended up using the super thin wired silver ribbon that I had purchased for my back-up plan.
When I bring these to Christian's class I will probably put them in a basket. But I am keeping them in the box - just in case I have a tennis match and my hubby has to bring them to the classroom. He refuses to carry a basket.
