Inspired by all the Back-To-School commercials, ads and scrapbook paper, I had no choice but to create something in that theme.  So, I came up with a Pencil Holder with, of course, Graphic-45 new School line of paper, and I love it all.
I just love the way Sakura 3-D Crystal Lacquer allows me to 'pop' selected areas to give it a well polished look.  On the Bottle Cap, Sakura 3-D Crystal Lacquer brightens the graphics and protects it giving it a glassy look.  I also used it on the clocks and the ruler to make them stand out.

Let's get started:
Supplies Needed:
   Sakura 3-D Crystal Lacquer
   Paper, your choice
   Bottle Cap, (this one is from Once Upon A Page in Burbank)
   Stick Pin.
1.)  For the Bottle Cap, I circle-punched a piece of  green cardstock and gave it a good coat of 3-D Lacquer, and let it dry. Then put a pin in it and again coated the inside of bottle cap with lacquer, let it dry and added ribbon and stick pin.
2.)  Cut Background Paper to fit around Milk Can.  Using Sakura 3-D Crystal Lacquer I adhered it to the can.
3.)  I cut the ruler and clocks from one of the papers, used Crystal Lacquer on entire ruler to give it a lacquered look, and only applied Crystal Lacquer to Clock Faces, let them dry and applied along with the abc graphic.  Add Pencils and Pens, place on your desk, and know it is there to greet you whenever you need it.
Happy creating and keep smiling, Carol
