Burper (Nibble) the pencil sharpener!!!!

This is Nibble the pencil sharpner, but I call him Burper because her burps & says 'oops sorry!' after he's chewed on your pencil!!
He was centre of attention on my WOYWDW post & he got lots of comments! If you put 'Nibble the pencil sharpener' into your search bar (mine is google) the cheapest one it brings up is actually a green one by thats £12.99
Happy pencil sharpening!!!!

I have used a template for a handbag wedding favour on SU double sided 12x12 paper I have coloured Anya with SU markers The Fabulous friend is also SU & the flower, brad, pink gem, mini peg & handbag charm are from my stash. The insert I have made is handbag sized to slot inside like a tag with a ribbon pull. Hope you like it
