Materials Needed for Teacher appreciation pencil holder

Instructions

  1. Remove straws from the straw holder
  2. Design your words on your cutting machine.  I used Clementine(from Font Bundles) and Times New Roman for creating my Pencil Holder.  You can use any scroll type and block type font!
  3. Cut the black and red letters separately!
  4. Weed the vinyl and use transfer tape or contact paper to “pick up” the vinyl.
  5. Mark the holder with a dry erase marker so you can get it straight!
  6. Apply Black and then Red vinyl to your straw holder.
  7. Fill with pencils. Regular or colored!
