 This instructable will show you how to make a pencil holder for your binder. This will take around 15-30 minutes to make. 

For this instructable you don't have to use duct tape. You ca use pretty much any type. I just found duct tape to work the best.

Step 1: Supplies and Tools

 Supplies
Duct tape
Thin Card Board
Binder (for measuring) 
grommet kit (optional)

Tools
Scissors
Pencil
Sharpie
Hobby Knife

Step 2: Start the Wrapping

To make this instructable you must start by wrapping the pencil will duct tape. You must wrap it with the sticky side out so the pencil doesn't stick to it. Wrap it 2 times around.

Once you are about to wrap the pencil for the 2nd time, put less then a quarter of one side of the tape on the piece that you put on the pencil before. You must do this so the pieces stick together.

Step 3: Clean Up the Wrapping

Now you must wrap the duct tape again this time the sticky side will be touching the sticky side of the tape already on the pencil. Start wrapping with a little piece of excess duct tape at the end of the pencil. Just wrap it one time around. Once you are done with this step you should just see the top part of the pencil (the bottom of it). 

Step 4: Cutting the Card Board

Now that your done with the wrapping you will have to cut the cardboard to reinforce the part that you will make the holes in. First draw a rectangle that is 7 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. These measurements are for a brand new pencil. Once you are done cutting move onto the next step.

Step 5: Attaching the Cardboard

 First start by wrapping the pencil compartment and the cardboard together. You any need one wrap for a medium thickens cardboard. If you  are using a really thin cardboard or construction paper wrap it at east 3 times around. Wrap it until the cardboard is connected to the pencil compartment. If you can see any card board wrap it with smaller strips of duct tape.

Step 6: Making the Ring Holes

 In order to make the holes for the rings, you need to  mark the spots where they will go. Put the duct tape pencil holder next to the rings in a binder. Now mark the spots next to the rings where the holes will go. Now cut along the lines of the "x" that you just made. Once you are done get a pencil and push the pencil through the cut you just made. Now your done!

Step 7: The Finished Product.

 The finished product.
This is awesome. I also made one like this, but I hadn't known you had already put up an instructable! I like the way you approached it with the whole pencil covered, but you did it kind of messy. I got to say, having this in my binder is super efficient. The lead never breaks, and its a quick easy access.
this is a really neat idea !!
Thanks!<br />
