Children's Crafts - Make a Pencil Case

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Make a Pencil Case from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need
6 x 12 inches sheet of corrugated cardboard
90cm ribbon

1. Place the cardboard on a flat surface with the grooves facing upwards. Mark the centre of the two shorter ends and, with a ruler, draw a line from one end to the other so that the card is divided in half lengthways.
2. Starting 1 inch in from one of the shorter edges, make a mark either side of the first groove along the centre line. Leave one groove then repeat. Continue until you have marked all the way along the cardboard.
3. Measure the width of your ribbon. Cut thin slots along the grooves at each marked point – make sure each slot is as long as the ribbon is wide.
4. Starting at one end of the card, thread the ribbon through the first slot from the flat side. Continue threading the ribbon in and out. Make sure you finish with the ribbon on the flat side.
5. Pull the ribbon through the card so that there is an even length at either end. Now place a pencil in each of the grooves.
6. Pull the ribbon at both ends to ensure it is tight enough to hold the pencils in place. Turn the card over and glue the ribbon to either end of the card. Leave to dry and trim the ribbon if necessary – leave enough to tie a bow.
