Guide To Make Pencil Boxes

How To Make Pencil Boxes?

You must write a lot when completing class assignments or homework, whether at school or elsewhere. It would help if you also had a highlighter, pencil, pen, gel pen, sketch pen, and a variety of other writing implements for writing. Then there are numerous successes, like an eraser, a mini-stapler, and post-it notes.

Continue on to some additional essential items that you require, such as hand sanitizers, keys, and coins, to name a few. You need a pencil pouch or pencil box after hauling all of these things.

Keeping pencils and other tiny items, products, or components in a single location is all that a pencil box is intended to do.

Here’s a simple guide to making a pencil guide:

Materials List:

  • Colored Paper
  • Glue
  • Felt-Tip Pens
  • Scissors
  • Decorative Beads


Grab a piece of paper that is 15 by 16 cm in size. Grab a piece of paper and bend and twist it. The wrapped portion of paper adheres at both ends.

Use a piece of paper that is 2 cm broad and 19 cm long. Start constructing the pencil box lid. Take a piece of paper and wrap it around the edge of the blank. Trim any extra paper.

The paper strip’s opposing ends are attached with adhesive. Take a 6 cm by 6 cm square piece of blank paper. Add a paper ring with glue to this blank.

Trim away any extra paper. The lid of the pencil box is ready. The pencil case’s a back wall is starting to take shape. Take a 6 cm by 6 cm square piece of blank paper.

On the back of the case adhere a piece of blank paper. Remove any extra paper. Start embellishing the pencil case. Start constructing a paper bow. Use a piece of blank paper that is 7 cm by 7 cm in size.

Create triangular cuts, as seen in the picture, starting from the work piece’s opposing (upper and bottom) sides and moving toward the middle.

The workpiece’s right and left sides are bent inward. Trim any extra paper.

The upper and bottom sides of the workpiece are bent inward toward the center at both ends. And join them using glue. At the right triangle, cut. Remove the triangle on the left.

Add a bead to the bow’s center to adorn it. The pencil case and bow are joined by adhesive. The pen case is prepared!

Use Recyclable Items To Create A Pen Holder

Recycling is the process of turning trash into new products and materials. A lot of the waste that is laying around the house can be used to create some amusing DIY items.

Supplies Needed:

  • Empty roll of toilet paper
  • Scissors
  • Colored paper with glue
  • Decorative items of your choice, such as pipe cleaners, buttons, glitter, stickers, and so forth.

Step 1:

To fit the diameter of the empty toilet roll, cut a sheet of paper.

Step 2:

Above the cutout, position the toilet roll vertically, and affix it. The toilet roll must then be wrapped in chart paper.

Step 3:

You can customize it by twisting pipe cleaners and adhering them, or you can put buttons and draw petals around them, doodle, add glitter, or any other method you like. The child is solely responsible for decorating.

Your homemade pen stand is now prepared. The pen stand can be customized perfectly to the child’s preferences, keeping him occupied for a few hours.5

Pencil Case Made from Recycled Plastic Bottles


  • Bottles of plastic
  • Zippers
  • A matching-colored felt to the zipper
  • Low-temp glue gun, glue sticks, and fabri-tac
  • Scissors knife
  • Marker


Determine the size of the things that will fit inside the case and trim two bottles’ bottoms to match. The two cut bottoms should be big enough to hold the crayons, markers, and pencils when you fit them together.

To determine the proper length, wrap the zipper around the bottle’s cut edge. Trim to length.

To cover and seal the zipper’s cut end, cut a little rectangle of felt and adhere it there.

Close the zipper and set it aside. Apply Fabri-tac or glue with a low-temperature hot glue gun to the cut edges of the bottles, leaving a small gap between them so that the zipper’s teeth may move freely.

Keep adhering to glue until the zipper is completely wrapped around the bottoms of the bottles.

List of Common School Supplies

Everyone should always keep the following items in their pencil bag and supply list:

  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Ruler
  • Pencil Sharpener

Make sure you have plenty of pencils because, at many schools, writing with one is more common than with a pen.

A regular school pencil would be a good option because they are affordable and accessible. However, sharpening its tip using a pencil sharpener can be rather messy. As a result, you might think about using a mechanical pencil.

Its tip comes in a wide range of sizes but is always the same size. Since it is more accurate, this sort of pencil is ideal for technical drawings. Because the tip of a mechanical pencil is much thinner and more brittle than a conventional pencil, you constantly need some extra refills. As a result, you might need to replace it earlier than you anticipated.

Related Questions

What’s the composition of the pencil box?

Metal or wood are only a couple of the materials that may be used to make pencil cases. While some pencil cases utilize a softer material like plastic, leather, or cotton, others use a hard and stiff shell that encloses the pens inside.

How do you determine a box’s size?

Simply multiply the sum of your box’s dimensions. Volume is calculated using the same formula as box dimensions: length x width x height. Keep in mind, too, that the final measurement will be cubed, square inches, centimeters, or whichever unit you used to determine the box’s size.
