Cardboard Tube Pencil Organizer

I love this pen and pencil organizer. It's so cute, and it's simply made from the cardboard centers of toilet paper, held together by glue. I spray painted the outside to give it an eye-catching shine.

Total Time: 1 hour

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Take your cardboard tubes to a well-ventilated area to paint. A large cardboard box lined with a plastic bag underneath works great.
  2. Spray the cardboard tubes. Turn to coat all sides evenly.
  3. Stand them up and allow them to dry for at least 45 minutes.
  4. Apply glue in a straight line across one of the tubes.
  5. Press a tube right next to it onto the line of glue.
  6. Place another line of glue on the other side of the tube. Add another tube here.
  7. Place 2 tubes on top of the first row, then the last tube on top. Inspect them to see where to add glue to keep them secure.
  8. Now add the glue on the areas where the tubes would be touching.
  9. Glue them on so you have a pyramid. Allow to dry for at least 10 minutes.
  10. Fill with pens and pencils.

I save most of my cardboard to turn into things-- otherwise goes to the recyclers :) Thank you!
