Picture of Pencil Box Easel
My old set of colored pencils came in a nifty little box that folded into an easel, so you could see all the colors instead of just a bunch of eraser ends. My new box didn't have any such feature, so I modified it to add one. All it takes is a spare bit of cardboard and a little glue.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

You'll need:

- shiny new box of pencils
- card stock or thin cardboard. I reused a cereal box (because reusing is better than recycling)
- glue or tape
- knife or scissors (or the Epilog laser cutter you win for making an Instructable that recycles old cereal boxes)
- straight edge
- pen or pencil to mark the cut and fold lines
this very simple, a 5-year-old can also do it, no need of seeing intructions for this one!!
