So, in school, in dont want to go around with a huge pencil case. Although they are very practical, they aren't very convenient. So, I decided to make a very simple pencil case for my three pens.
I made this in 15 minutes or so, and I planned for it.
Well, my version can hold three pencils, and it fits into my pocket. The length is around 19 cm (Around 7.5 inch)
I used two post-it notes from Nordic Office. They arent the square one, these are rectangles.
I also used some marking tape, any tape will work though - espacially duct tape !
I also used a double-tipped pen, for making my design.
Well, since this is very simple, most pictures will be on what I used, and then text on what I did.
Step 1: Fold the Paper Into Half
Half of its length.
PLEASE NOTE: That thats what I needed, if you use another paper make sure your quantity of pens fit inside it.
Also, use your tape (optional - recommend it though) and tape all around the paper. It might be a good idea to unfold it and then tape it. Also, make sure you tape over one bottom side of the paper, so that it becomes closed.
Step 2: Do Step 1 Again
Then, unfold it and tape it if you did it with the first one.
Step 3: Now, Put the Paper Back On
Put the paper back on, and then tape them together, or glue, or whatever you want. I taped them.
It makes a junction, but who cares. Make sure that you have around 3 cm (1,2 inch) leftover on the top, to make a flap to close this case.
Step 4: Creating the Flap
To make it I cut of one side of the flap, so that there were only one flap left, on one side. I then used a x-acto or mat cutter, or w/e you call them, and made a cut in the middle of it, wide enough for a bit of tape to enter.
I then took the tape and folded it together, adhesive to adhesive side, and saved a cm or so so that it could stick to the pencil case. I then placed the "flap holder" beneath the flap and placed it so that it could easily enter the hole I cut. The flap will now stay closed !
After that, theres only the painting left, if you want. I simply made an arrow on the tape for the flap, wrote "V1LL33's awesome pencil case", and some of my favourite words I often use (huzza, zing and awesome)
You can however paint like a tribal or a dragon, if youre that dedicated.
Well, your done. Feel free to comment on changes you made, ideas you want to make or any comments about the instructable - maybe I used the image notes a little to much..
Feedback, please !
I'm planning on making this in duct tape, maybe in the weekend.. I have heaps of cardboard to use that weekend, any ideas ? :) Im making Loshagans cardboard shelf and the Giant FN button, so those would be excluded.
