I have many pencils and so I decided to do something to keep them all displayed.
I wanted to do this the smallest possible because so they will fit anyways in my pencil case without occupy too much space.

It can be used for many other tools and craft too, you just need to adjust the small cuts size.

This is so good! Great idea cause even with a rubber band you still ahve to find the right pencil. These just roll open. Going to try this. Great instructable and so simple. :)

You could use the same design for a bullet bandolier prop

Now that is an easy and great idea. I am an artist. I am going to do this one. Love the idea and think it will work great. This would also, be a good idea for someone that does jewelry making for their tools and many other craft projects tools as well.
marcellahella (author)  bc411296 months ago

cheaper way if you dont have that could you use 2 pieces of duct tape? that be cool
marcellahella (author)  nightninja876 months ago
I think duck tape may be working too, good idea!
You can also ask for the used inner tubes to a bike store, they have so many.

What, no "Cool Stuff to Do With an Old Bicycle Tube" contest? If there were, this would have my vote.
