We do not always have to face that the case that we will have for put away the pencils it will be plastic or fabric. We’re not saying these are bad materials, but it is true that you can be very creative with pencil cases.

Now we have the possibility of creating our own holsters. It means we can be as creative as we want. We will not miss the opportunity, let alone for children’s pencils. We will make them feel proud to take out pencils in class. Or pens or brushes. With a handmade case, you can show yourself in any way.

We will appreciate a pencil case shape that looks like a toiletry bag. We can roll it up and unroll it quickly and easily. With a striking piece of fabric, we will sew on the back two or three pockets with a transparent plastic window. We sew everything together and close it with zippers. To close it we can use buttons or a belcro.

Pencil case for your pencils – Recycled paper


When you talk about recycled paper, many think of a pencil case made from pieces of newspaper or cardboard and voila. But it turns out that we created very firm and solid squares with strips of newspaper. They are glued so that they do not come off and receive a varnish bath so that they become waterproof. Next, we join the squares to create the pencil case.

A really fun way to reuse old zippers. To build a very original pencil case. It will be filled with zippers, but only as a base for the case. It will only have the top opening, because the others will be closed with a piece of fabric. You can make the pencil case, but you can also make something fun and entertaining.
