Pencil Cup Freebie!

Hi teacher friends! It's Erin, from Little Miss Primary :)
I hope all is well as you're getting ready for kiddos to come (or maybe they've already started!)!

Back to school has always been one of my favorite times of the year...
mostly because it meant I got brand new school supplies!!
Maybe it's a teacher thing (or just a "me" thing...haha), 
but a new pack of crayons and freshly sharpened pencils are just the bee's knees!!

Today, I want to share how I organize those pretty little pencils. 
It's really simple.
Because, sometimes, I just need simple!
If you follow my own blog, you saw this freebie {here}. If not, you're in luck!


It all began with the little red bucket...

My mom gave me these adorable little red buckets a while back (thanks, Mom!!) and I knew that they would be perfect for my pencils! I want the pencils to be easily accessible and clearly labeled.

I wanted to keep it super simple--print, cut, hole punch. 
Print the labels on cardstock (free at the bottom!).
Cut out the labels.
Hole Punch a little hole at the top of the label.

I made two! 
One for the pretty, sharp pencils...
and the other for the chewed/broken/tiny/sad little pencils.
You know, those pencils.

Finally, some flair! A little bit of ribbon never hurt anybody. 
Am I right?


Easy + functional + cute = win.

 Click the picture below to snag the freebie labels!
I've included sharp, dull, sharpened, and unsharpened. 

Good luck with back to school prep! Here is to hoping that all goes smoothly! :)

Happy teaching, friends!!
