Step 1: You Will Need:


Pair of scissors




Step 2:

Draw 4 circles of 5 cm radius on the cardboard and cut them out.

Step 3:

Divide each circle equally into 8 sections and mark it with a pencil.

Step 4:

Make cuts of 1 cm length from outside the circle along the pencil lines marked in the previous step. (fig.1 shows the cuts in red color)

Step 5:

Take 3 circles and draw a circle of 2.5 cm in the center of each 3 circles. Cut and remove each of the center circles. (Remove the green color area in fig.1)

Step 6:

Take a cardboard of 15*6 cm and draw a half of a pineapple shape as in fig.2.

Step 7:

Cut it off and use it as a block to draw the other parts.

Step 8:

Using this block draw the shape on the cardboard and cut them off. You can use a decorative border scissor to get scallops at the outer edge of the half pineapple shape. If you don’t have this kind of a scissor you can make small scallops using a normal scissor. Make 8 from this shape.

Step 9:

Make cuts of 1 cm length on the half pineapple shape as in fig.2. (Fig.2 shows the cuts in red color).

Step 10:

Erase all the pencil marks on circles and half pineapple shape.

Color all the shapes cut from the cardboard with crayons using suitable colors.

Step 11:

Connect the circle shape to the bottom of the half pineapple shape through the cuts. Then connect the ring shapes to the half pineapple shape through the other 3 cuts.

Step 12:

Connect the remaining half pineapple shapes to the circle and rings in the same manner.

Step 13:

Adjust all the parts carefully to get the desired.

Step 14:

Now your pen holder is ready to use.
