Pretty pencil holder

Hold all your school supplies in this pencil holder.

You’ll need:

colourful book or magazine for recycling
a pencil or knitting needle
an empty soup tin
white glue


1. Remove the label and wash empty soup tin.

2. Starting at one corner of each flat book or
magazine page, make a tube by rolling one
page at a time around a pencil or knitting
needle until the roll is completed at the
opposite corner from where you started. Glue
the outside corner to the back of the tube.

3. Cut straight across the bottom of each roll
with scissors to random lengths.

4. Glue the trimmed rolls all the way around the
outside of the tin so the straight-edged bottom
of each roll lines up with the bottom of the tin.
