Make a Pencil Box


Make a Pencil Box

Materials needed:
l empty fireplace matchbox (long)
1 sheet of gift wrap paper or sticky-back paper
white glue (if using gift wrap paper)


1. Choose a sheet of gift wrap paper with a nice design, or
a sheet of sticky-back paper. Lay paper face-down and put an
empty fireplace match box on top. Draw line around box. Cut
paper out along lines.
2. (If you use sticky-back paper skip step #2.) Spread thin
layer of white glue on top of matchbox. Be sure glue goes
all the way to the edge of box.
3. Glue paper to box face-up.
4. Repeat steps #1 and #2 to cover bottom of matchbox.
5. Fill with pencils, pen, eraser, and sharpener.
***Strike-strip on side of box may be used to sharpen dull
pencil points.
