KIDS CRAFT: PAPER BACK-TO-SCHOOL PENCILS

Here's a fun little craft to get kids in the mood for back to school: adorable paper pencils!


These aren't your typical no. 2 pencils. They are chic, adorned with pattern, and have my favourite: white erasers on the ends!

But you can make them any colour you want, and to do so, you'll need a few tools first to get the project going.

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

(Kids are perfectly capable to do this project, but an adult should be present around the use of the paper trimmer).

DIRECTIONS:

First, punch out as many hearts as pencils you'll need in off-white and gray card stock. Do the same by punching semi-circles with the circle punch on the white card stock. Then, follow the steps below:

1. Measure the bottom of the semi-circle on the paper trimmer, and trim your scrapbook paper that width. Then, trim it to about 2 1/4 inches long.

2. Cut across the top, width-wise, with the scalloped scissors.

3. Apply glue runner to the pencil base and attach to an off-white upside-down heart.

4. Trim the ends off the heart.

5. Apply the gold "metal" and cut off the excess.

6. Tape the white semi-circle or "eraser" to the pencil's edge.

7. Cut the tip of a gray heart to make the "graphite".

8. Attach it to the pencil with the glue stick.

Each pencil takes about 5 minutes to make. Attach them to gifts, cards, or make them just for fun.


I hope you enjoyed today's craft. If you still have a little back to school shopping to do, check out this post too. Have a great day!
