Fun Pencil Box

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Create this colorful pencil box to store your pencils, pens, paintbrushes, scissors, and other supplies you need for school and homework. Use your choice of ribbon to work as the “hinges”.

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Bubblegum - 57
  • Red - 80
  • Raspberry - 56
  • Orange - 56
  • Cheddar - 39
  • Yellow - 89
  • Kiwi Lime - 56
  • Green - 1019
  • Pastel Blue - 88
  • Purple - 92
  • Brown - 70
  • Black - 8

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here. You will also need:

  • Craft glue
  • Ribbon - 18 inches
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Fun Pencil Box Project Pattern. You will use 2 large square pegboards to create your projects. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.

Step: 3

Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. DO NOT OVER-IRON as this will cause the beads to close and can make assembly of your project more challenging. Let the design cool.

Step: 4

Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat the fusing. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.

Step: 5

ASSEMBLY: Glue the layers in order to the green base, aligning color stripes. When you get to layer 3, you will need to work in pieces to leave the slots for the ribbon.

Step: 6

Cut two lengths of ribbon to work as your hinges. Insert the ribbon pieces through the slots. Align the lid with the color stripes of assembled box. Insert each ribbon end from inside the box through the appropriate slot in the lid. Tie each in a bow.
