PLACE ONE LAYER OF YOUR VINYL ON A FLAT SURFACE AND LAY YOUR 8 1/2" X 11" TEMPLATE ATOP IT. GRAB ANY PEN (I'M USING MY PROJECT LIFE PEN) AND TRACE AROUND THE PAPER.

 

TRIM INSIDE YOUR LINE

GRAB YOUR SCISSORS AND CUT OUT YOUR FIRST PIECE OF VINYL MAKING SURE TO TRIM INSIDE THE DRAWN LINE.

 

 

REPEAT FOR MULTIPLES

GO AHEAD AND REPEAT STEPS 1 + 2 SO THAT YOU END UP WITH TWO SAME SIZE PIECES OF YOUR CLEAR VINYL.

 

LAY DOWN SOME CONFETTI

PLACE ONE PIECE OF YOUR VINYL ON A FLAT SURFACE AND SPREAD A LIBERAL AMOUNT OF CONFETTI ALL OVER THE SHEET.

 

TRAP THE CONFETTI

WITH THE CONFETTI LOOSE ON THE FIRST PIECE OF VINYL, CAREFULLY PLACE AND ALIGN THE SECOND PIECE ATOP IT. THIS WILL CREATE SOME STATIC CLING AND SHOULD TRAP THE CONFETTI BETWEEN THE TWO LAYERS.

 

PIERCE YOUR LAYERS

GRAB YOUR AWL AND PIERCING MAT AND PIERCE EVENLY AROUND ALL FOUR EDGES OF YOUR TWO LAYERS. WITH THIS WE R MEMORY KEEPERS MAT, THERE ARE MARKINGS ALONG THE EDGE THAT WILL HELP WITH EVEN PIERCING, BUT YOU CAN JUST EYEBALL IT AS WELL!

 

STITCH THE CONFETTI IN

FOLD UP THE BOTTOM TO THE SIZE OF PENCIL CASE YOU WISH TO HAVE. KEEP IN MIND THE TOP FLAP WILL FOLD OVER AND CLASP AS WELL SO LEAVE SPACE FOR THAT WHEN YOU'RE MAKING THIS FIRST FOLD.

YOU'LL BE STITCHING NEXT SO GRAB YOUR THREAD!

GRAB YOUR PEN AND RULER AND MARK 2" IN FROM YOUR STITCH LINE AND ABOUT 1/4" DOWN FROM TOP OF PENCIL CASE ON EACH SIDE (YOU'LL PLACE TWO STUDS TOTAL).

 

ONCE YOU HAVE THE POSITIONING FOR YOUR STUDS MARKED IN PEN, GRAB YOUR HOLE PUNCH AND PUNCH THROUGH THE MARKS.

 

 

IN THE PUNCHED HOLE, THREAD THE SCREW BACK FOR YOUR STUD THROUGH THE VINYL AND AFFIX THE STUD TO THE SCREW TIGHTLY. REPEAT THIS SO THAT YOU HAVE TWO STUDS IN PLACE.

ONCE YOUR STUDS ARE IN PLACE, GENTLY FOLD THE TOP OVER AND MARK ATOP THE STUD PLACEMENT WHERE YOUR STUD WILL PIERCE THE TOP FOR THE CLOSURE OF YOUR PENCIL CASE. 

 

 

ONCE YOU HAVE THE OVERLAP MARKED, GRAB YOUR HOLE PUNCH AND PUNCH THROUGH YOUR FLAP IN BOTH CLOSURE LOCATIONS.
