Dutch Dare Card Challenge!

I should really be studying but this project has been sitting on my bookshelf unfinished since Thanksgiving (Canadian). And's driving me crazy! I found this idea for decorating a coffee tin to hold prismacolour pencil crayons somewhere on someone's blog. I wish I could link to them but I have no idea where I saw it. I did a lot of embossing on it and I was happy to find out that I could still colour in the sunflowers with prismacolours/baby oil even though they were embossed. And I'm entering this into this week's Dutch Dare Card Challenge since the challenge is to make anything but a card. Here's the finished product:

One thing that I did add of my own for this was the dividers. I wanted to somehow keep some of the pencils separated so I cut a cereal box and made four sections for the inside of the can. The only downside to this project is once your pencils get to short they can get lost in the can. I'll probably add something to the bottom of the tin eventually so that the pencils will get a boost :) Here's a view from the top with the pencils:

And then without the pencils:
