Time needed: 10 minutes.
How to Make the Paper Pen Holder
- Cut the paper in square size
Take A4 size color paper. You need eight (8) paper to make one paper pen holder. The paper needs to be cut into square-shaped pieces.
- Take two color combinations and make their foldings
Now take papers of any two colors of your choice and make their folding in cross (+) shape. The paper will be divided into four square sections. Fold 2 of the square sections on the same side into triangular shapes. Then fold the whole sheet by overlapping the triangular shape on top of the other half. Make another such folding of a different color.
- Now join the two different colored folding with each other
Form a square box by intertwining two folds of the sheet to form a rectangular box as shown in the image. Make such 4 boxes from folds of sheets thus consuming 8 sheets of paper as each box requires 2 different papers.
- Join the two boxes to each other with glue
Now using glue, join two boxes to form a bigger box. Mind the design and color of the sheet of each individual box as shown in the picture below. Make two half-sections by joining 2 boxes for each half.
- Join the half boxes to make the full paper pen holder
Now join the half sections to form a full pen holder using the two half sections formed in step 4.
- Glue the lower section of the pen holder to cover the bottom side
Your pen holder is complete now but the bottom side is not covered. Take a piece of paper of any matching color. Cut it the size of the lower cross-section and the pen holder and attach it with glue. The complete pen holder is shown below.
