Introduction: ★PENCILS ORGANIZER STRIPS★

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.

Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED

You need:
-leather or used inner tube;
-scissors.

Step 2: CUT

Cut a stripe of leather or inner tube.
Do it long enough for all your pencils.

Step 3: SMALL CUTS

Fold the leather or inner tube and make many small cut like in the drawing.
Two more external and two more internal, and so on. Where two cut end other two cut should start.

Step 4: HOW TO PLACE THE PENCILS

Place your pencils through the holes.
One up and one under the stripe, so they can stay really close together.

Step 5: CLOSING LACE

Make a long strip of leather or innertube.
Make an hole at the end of the pencils organizer, insert the stripe and make a knot.
Roll it around the pencils organizer.

Step 6: DONE

Done! They will be able to fit all in your pencils case, almost like if they were loose.

Can I use a piece of duct tape instead of leather if I put the sticky ends together?

Thanks. I've been looking for a way to keep my pencils visible, handy, and not have their points in danger of breaking. This might be a good first step. I like it.

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)bc411292014-01-08

cheaper way if you dont have that could you use 2 pieces of duct tape? that be cool

author

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.
