Crafty DIY: How to make paper-wrapped pencils

26 Feb

I just found this video over at Scissors Paper Wok (S.P.W). I love this tutorial for making your own paper pencils, and I thought I’d share it with you.

I’ve seen other tutorials where you wrap an ordinary wooden pencil with paper using white glue as adhesive, but this one is different. You’re actually wrapping the inside lead (the writing part of the pencil, also known as Rsas in my dialect) with paper and creating an all-paper pencil.

And if you find the passion in you to create more paper pencils, here is a great idea for you:

Use layers of different colored paper to create a layered effect every time you sharpened your parer pencil!
