Creating a cute way to hold your writing utensils is as easy as finding a plain ceramic cup and some cute rub-on transfer letters. I made this cute craft of a DIY rub-on transfer letter pencil holder with these fun Martha Stewart letters and a sweet, white pottery container.
Using rub-on transfer letters is a really easy way to label and decorate blank containers. Because they are plastic, they tend to be somewhat water resistant too. Rub on transfers and other stickers such as waterslide tattoos can also be used and made more permanent and durable with dishwasher-safe Mod Podge.
For a traditional transfer, cleaning the surface and making sure the surface is clean of any oils or residue is key. Once the surface of is completely clean, place the rub-on transfer and press. Many times they have a slightly sticky back to help hold them in place, otherwise you can place a few pieces of tape to hold it place so it doesn’t slide. It’s helpful to cut out and line up your letters first before adding to make sure the spacing is correct. A dry erase marker is a great way to add a line to line up your letters for even placement.
Once the transfer is in place, use a popsicle stick or bone folder to press firmly, moving around the entire letter or rub-on, making sure to apply pressure around the entire area of the backing. When removing the plastic backing of the letter or image, lift slowly so if any part is sticking, you can place it back down and add some extra pressure to make sure it all sticks. Line up each rub-on after and repeat until all of your letters are added.
The DIY rub-on transfer letter pencil holder is so cute, and is a great way to organize stray pens and pencils! For more office organization ideas, check out 7 ways to be organized for the disorganized.
