Today I am bringing you an update for my Polychromos Pencils. I haven’t seen it anywhere else. Last year I had bought myself the full set of Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils and I absolutely love them in every way. But in the past couple of months I have been having trouble seeing the pencil numbers that are written in gold foil on each pencil. I was thinking that I was going to have to give up using my favourite colouring medium. Then I thought about how I name my kids pencils for school each year and an idea came to mind.
Here is the whole set completed 🙂
I used my computer and some Avery Media Labels
Printed the number of the pencils onto them, I fitted 9 numbers per label
The biggest part was cutting them apart
I found the mini label wasn’t sticking very well so I had to wrap a bit of clear tape around the number to help it stay on.
I am really happy with this hack – I can keep on using my pencils without straining to see the numbers that I am after. Maybe this will help someone as well.
Thank you for stopping by to see my project. If you could leave a like and even a comment I would appreciate it and I would know you stopped by. My wish for you is that you find yourself doing something crafty and relaxing soon.
