I love working with paper – and this is my latest project!DIY pencil holder from paper tubes

Tubes of vintage book paper connected into a heart shape!

And I’m loving the large wooden chopping board I sourced at the SPCA last week. I scrubbed it clean, and now it makes a good background for pics!

How to make a Pencil Holder from Tubes

  1. Roll pages of book paper around a dowel stick to form a tube.
  2. Secure with a touch of wood glue.
  3. Allow to dry
  4. Join at the top and the bottom of the tubes with clip.  Form into heart shape.
  5. Trace the finished shape, and cut a cardboard base from the pattern
  6. Attach to the base of the holder with wood glue.
