Step by Step Instructions

1 Preparing your pencils
2 Marking the cuts
3 Cutting the pencil holes
4 Attaching the string
5 Finished Product
  • Step 1. Preparing your pencils

    For the first step we’re going to lay out our pencils before we cut the holders. Lay your felt down on a flat surface and place a ruler along the long side. Lay your pencils down about 6cm in from the left edge of the felt and about 3cm apart. Keep going until you get about 6cm from the other end.

  • Step 2. Marking the cuts

    Once you have all your pencils in place we’re going to mark where we need to make the cuts. Using a pencil, mark near your pencils about 5cm from the bottom and do the same for the top of the felt.

  • Step 3. Cutting the pencil holes

    Take your pencils off the felt and turn it over. Fold along the pencil marks and use scissors to cut them out. You will only need to make small cut on each mark.

  • Step 4. Attaching the string

    Now we need to make a hole for the string to go through. The string will act as a tie to hold the rolled up pencil case closed. Using scissors, make a small hole about 2cm from one end of the felt. Cut a piece of string to about 25cm, fold it in half and thread the folded end through the hole. Now thread the two ends of the string through the loop and pull tight.

  • Step 5. Finished Product

    And there we have it, all you need to do now is put your pencils in there and roll it up. A fun way to store your pencils and you’ll be the envy of the classroom!
