Happy Friday, everyone!  Today is the last day of a week long hop collaboration with our friends at Tombow!  We hope you’ve checked in every day this week for projects using Fancy Pants Designs chalk products with the wonderful Irojiten soft colored pencils from Tombow… a perfect match.  And don’t forget to enter our giveaway!

Today we’re finishing the week with a fun project from Jess:

This month marks a momentous vacation for my friends… our group has scattered all over the US and after months of planning we are finally all managing to gather in one giant house with the second generation.  We’ll have six kids aged one and half to four and a half, yikes!!!

So I decided to welcome them!

Summer Sign and Bucket_Jess Mutty_Fancy Pants Designs
I created a bucket for each child and a sign to welcome all our friends to the house.  We’ll be arriving first and I can’t wait to see these kids’ excitement!

The Welcome sign is constructed from simple white  bound boards so it stands up.  I covered it with various papers: red corrugate and patterns from Nautical.  I adhered four large chalk tags side by side to create a message area.

I cut the word from scrap paper on my Silhouette and used it as a stencil with the Tombow Irojiten pencils.

The buckets and everything in them were inexpensive but packed!  Each one includes a beach ball, bubbles, two pieces of sidewalk chalk, a juice pouch, applesauce, raisins, a dried fruit strip and Goldfish crackers.  Snacks and entertainment so Mom and Dad can unpack!

Of course I had to add some fun Nautical tags to these, with all the kids’ names! I Used the 3″ x 4″ cards for a base and had the same general formula for each tag.

I wrapped a length of chalk tape around a small tag for each child.  Perfect for adding names with the Tombow pencils!
