Today I want to share with you a story on how to make a pencil organizer with your own hands.
Recently, I was fascinated by the cartonnage technique. And I didn't expect that works out of cardboard can be as strong as wood. Well, you need to save them from getting wet.
Materials and tools:
- beer cardboard 1.5 mm thickness
- Moment pencil glue
- Titan glue
- two sheets of Tilda paper
- acrylic paint
- watercolour paper
- utility knife
- cutting mat
Download a template and cut it out.
Make a pattern out of thick paper.
Cut out 6 rectangles for the sides and 4 smaller parts.
Glue them in between, big rectangles consist of 3 layers, the smaller ones of two.
Glue the front and back walls the same way.
After drying, sand the edges of the blanks.
Combine the parts together:
Cut out connecting joints out of watercolour paper:
Glue such joints to the bottom:
Let all details dry:
Glue the top and leave to dry.
Glue the connecting joints to the bottom inside:
Cut out three details for the bottom, they're of different sizes:
Get ready to join the top and the bottom:
To make a partition, measure the distance inside:
Glue all parts of the partition to get the necessary thickness:
Glue the detail in the middle:
Cut out ovals to make a frontal decoration:
Paint the blank:
Slightly wax it:
Glue the paper details and wax the pencil organizer:
Decorate all inside:
I changed the picture in the oval because I didn't like the first one :)
My daughter immediately took the organizer for makeup brushes :)
