I made a photo record of the process. Hope you enjoy it.
Here is the original makeshift pencil box.
Here is the envelope after I decorated it with my favorite vintage and new stamps.
I wrapped it around the box and taped it inside. By the way, notice how a business envelope is an amazingly perfect pattern match for a toothpaste box. :) Here is the bottom.
Then I took sticker paper and measured pieces to fit the inside bottom and inside and out ends and put those pencils to work a bit. Put those in place and viola! Originally I planned to cover this with clear tape but I like it better this way. I can doodle on it.
Hope you all are warm, healthy and happy this evening.
It's a great day for America, everybody. Yes it is.
