I've got a daughter who is a pencil/crayon/marker/pen hoarder.
Seriously. (can't imagine where she gets that from :)
I thought that if I made her a fun case for her pencils, maybe she'll use them. We shall see.
These cute pencil cases were made using a 12-pack Fanta soda box.
Turned out adorable!
And this one was from a 20-can Diet Coke box.
Each of my kids have requested one now,
so I guess we'd better find some more soda boxes!
These would also make cute back to school teacher gifts!
You can make your own by using THIS TEMPLATE.
If you don't want to use soda boxes,
you could also upcycle some cereal boxes, like THESE.
**a little tip** the pencils that I bought were too long for my cases.
This could be solved simply by lengthening the box as you assemble it,
or just sharpen your pencils before putting in your case.
