Irish Writes

   OK so the title is stretching things a bit, but I am stuck on this Irish pun thing.  Today, I wanted to share with you a cute little pencil box I made for my niece. I bribe all my nieces and nephews with little bits and pieces in the mail so that I remain the favorite  aunt even when they cannot see me all the time.
I put this together using scraps from another project.  The tag is made from a dollar stamp I picked up at
Jo-Ann's last year.  I just love making little gifts and favor type things.

This was entered into the following challenge:
