Step 01: First, take paper and scissors. Cut the piece into 10 x 19 cm. we will need 64 cutting paper with that measurement. Ensure cutting paper in proper length.

Step 02: Use a stick to roll the paper. When rolling is almost done, apply glue on the remaining unrolled paper. This is how we’ll roll all the papers. Now the rolling is perfectly done and secured by glue. After rolling, the length will be 10 cm.

Note: The length of the rolling paper will be 10 cm.

Step 03: Similarly, we’ll have to roll more 10 papers. But now the measurement will be 9 x 19 cm. our rolling is complete by now.

Step 04: Then let’s divide by 64/8=8 rolls to make 8 walls using rolling paper when the rolling is done. Now take 8 paper roll aside, unit them using glue like that we’ll make total 8 walls. Now we will divide the remaining 10 paper rolls. Take 8 rolls and unit with glue; at last, take 2 rolls and join by glue.

Step 05: Now we need to make 2 boxes using 8 walls. Each box will require 4 walls. By applying glue, we’ll prepare a box. In the same way, we’ll prepare another box. Each box will be 10 cm in height.

Step 06: To make the boxes we have used 8 walls. So it’s time to join both boxes. For that, we’ll require a 9 cm wall. At this situation, we’ll not use the height; we’ll use the width. Applying glue on both sides of the border, we’ll attach boxes ending part at both sides. At another ending part, we’ll attach the remaining 2 rolls. Our structure is entirely ready.

Step 07: Then we need to put the prepared structure above a strong base. For that, we’ll have to prepare the base. We need a hard paper of 6.5 x 26 cm. The hard paper needs to place on a paper. For making the next step easier, attach the base with paper using glue. First, cut the paper according to the base’s measurement, but we’ll have to keep in mind that the paper size should be more significant than the base.

Step 08: It’s time to put glue on the base’s upper side and attach the paper’s remaining part with the hard paper. Our base is completely ready.

Step 09: Let’s put the structure on the base. Our pencil holder is almost ready.

Step 10: Now painting time, my friend! Take any color you like, and start using a brush, paint the whole pen holder.
