Pencil Box

Pencil Box - This week at Sew Many Challenges we are having a week of showing the new Fall images by Angela of Sew Many Cards. Today I get to show Marvin with Book. I love this image. Not only could he be used as a back to school image, but it would also be cute to use the book as a Bible. Marvin could then be a church mouse.

My card is actually a little pencil box. I found this pattern on line, but my computer locked up and I had to reboot it and was unable to find the site where I found it.

It is really simple to make. The belly band comes off and then the box opens up. I placed some things inside to show how big the opening is, but if you want it so fold flat, you would need to put something thinner in it.
My DP is Paper Studio's All Seasons paper pack. My punch is EK Success. and I added some Dew Drops.

My image is Marvin with Book and you can get it at Sew Many Cards.
