Speaking of School Cards-Bitten by the Bug 2's School challenge

Welcome to the latest Bitten By the Bug 2's challenge~Speaking of School.  The challenge is to use your Cricut machine to create something school related.  School is definitely a new experience this year whether you or your student is going back in person, virtually or a hybrid version.  New routine's are being introduced but hopefully, the kids still meet new friends, learn and play.  Let' create something to assist. Your project could be something for your student, your student's teacher, or something to help you educate at home.  The possibilities are endless. 

I made a series of cards using Cricut Speaking of School to spell my nephew's name.  I plan to send him one at a time.  I enhanced the ruler cuts with an ink pen on the ruler and protractor D. 

The "R" is just adorable!  I also enhanced the little boy with a black ink pen.

The pencils of the "E" are the most detailed of all these cards.  They were still super easy to assemble.  I used some metallic card stock on the pencil top that I have had for years.  It was a 25 count pack of a metallic silver. It's not super shiny, it's kind of brushed and has been the best product ever! I am sad that I am down to my last couple of sheets.

The crayons of the "W" was a little simple.  I altered the wrapper of the crayons to be a shade darker and hand wrote "crayon" on them for added detail.  Since these cards weren't quite square I made all the matching envelopes.
