Step 1: Step 1: Fold Your Rolls

The first thing you want to do is fold one end on two of your rolls, as shown in the pictures, and glue these ends shut with your glue gun.

Step 2: Step 2: Cut and Glue Your Third Roll

Take your third paper roll and cut it vertically, as shown in the picture, put this roll inside one of the rolls you glued shut at the end to measure how big it needs to be to fit inside. Note that it needs to fit quite tight with the roll outside in order to make the pencil case hold together in the end. Mark your spot with a pen and take out your third roll and glue it together as shown in the pictures.

Step 3: Step 3: Glue, Glue, Glue...

The third roll that you just cut and glued now needs to be glued stuck to one of your first rolls. Glue it all around, as shown in the picture and then push it down into the first roll, make sure to press it stuck and wipe away any glue leftovers on the roll.

Now you have the basic shape of your pencil case, just stick the second roll onto the third one sticking out of the first one. Note, do not glue the last roll stuck on the second roll.

Step 4: Step 4: Time to Decorate

If you like your pencil case the way it is you may keep it that way, making this step unnecessary, however I chose to decorate mine with some leftover wallpaper and some black washi tape.

Measure and cut your decorations as wished, In these pictures you can see how I did with mine.

Step 5: Step 5: Finished!

You now have an awesome pencil case that you made all by yourself! :D

This can also be used as a case for make-up, a gift wrapping/package, or simply just give the case as a gift - filled with pens or something yummy maybe? :)
