One Last Back to School Project...And Bows!!!

I promise!!!!LOL I know I've gone crazy making back to school gifts, but hey, they are SOOOO much fun!!!!
Lastnight I made these pencil bundles using a new image from Whimsie Doodles. I had all these pencils in my closet. I keep a rubbermaid box of school supplies in my closet to replenish my kids' supplies, but for the past couple of years they've been using mechanical pencils, so I figured I'd put my stash to good use!
I'm using this project  for a challenge over at Paper Playtime


I recycled some cans from lastnight's dinner and decorated them really quickly, can you tell!?LOL


Digi Image: Whimsie Doodles, Sentiment: Microsoft Word Art, Ribbon: WalMart
And one more project........
I've always seen these giant buttons at WalMart sold in 3's. They are so cute, but I couldn't figure out what else to do with them....then I thought...Hairbows!!!!!
So...I made 3!!! he,he!
**Sorry for the glare..it's not even 10am and the sun is shining so brightly! Gonna be another HOT day!
Aren't these buttons the cutest!? I wish I could figure out more uses for them. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear them!!!
