Back to School Stationery Set

Hello all!  Today I am sharing a back to school stationery set that I made using products that I recently received from Oriental Trading Company.  Did you know that they had scrapbooking supplies?  And some very nice ones at that! 

This was created with paper and embellishements from OTC's School Paper Kit.  That kit is so fun!  So many fun die cuts, papers and embellishments to choose from!  The files I used to create the set are from SVG Cuts' Back to the Books set.
 I added some super fun Chevron Washi Tapebuttons, black twine and Christmas twine.
 On the pencil I added a twine bow with a tag that was part of the die cuts included in the paper kit and added a stamp that I had on hand.  I colored the stamped image with Prismacolor pencils.  The picture didn't pick up the coloring as well as I had hoped.  They really colored very smooth!
Inside the stationery set is a set of 6 notecards I created.  For the ones with the solid color bases I used Full Color Spectrum Cardstock and the ones with the printed bases are more paper from the School Paper Kit along with all of the die cuts and sentiments.
I used Black cardstock for the matting layer.  I also made 6 envelopes to fit the notecards using White Cardstock and once again, files from SVG Cuts' Back to the Books set.  I used Oriental Trading's Permanent Adhesive Tape Runners and I was very happy with how sticky it was!
All of the products that I used from Oriental Trading Company to make this project were wonderful!  I would recommend any and all of them to you.  

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
