Super Fast Pencil Holders

Round Two in the Quick & Easy Gifts Series. This is a perfect project to work on with little ones. And you may be able to use all recycled materials that you already have at home!

Step One.
Wash & dry and save your empty cans. (I usually take the paper off too, but occasionally it stays on.)

Step Two.
Gather some supplies. Cans, pretty papers (or old newspapers & kids art work-they look great for this project), glue stick, paper cutter or scissors.

Step Three.
Measure you cans & cut paper to size. I find the best plan for measuring is the official make a mark with your fingernail (nicely manicured, still) on the paper measuring technique. If you want to do any extra embellishments on your papers, now is probably the best time to do so.

Step Four.
Use your glue stick and glue paper on!

Step Five.
Admire your work. Fill with lots of good things. These are good pencil holders for teachers or grandparents. They are also good to hold all of those cool breads in cans. Bake the bread in a separate can, cool,  then remove and put it in your super fancy can for gift giving.

Have fun!
