DIY Pencil Case

Fun recycled project! Make this DIY Pencil Case from a cereal box! #Craft

As soon as I saw this idea, I knew I had to give it a try! Kids love fun items with their favorite brand or characters. With Back to School upon us, this DIY Pencil Box craft made from cereal boxes was just too awesome! These only take minutes to put together and it’s a project that even the kids can make on their own!

Rice Krispies Pencil Box-1

What you Will Need

  • Empty Cereal Box
  • Cereal Box Pencil Case Template
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • scotch tape
  • Adhesive hook & loop tape (velcro)
  • ruler
  • Scoring tool (butter knife, paper clip, something to make a crisp edge)


Rice Krispies Pencil Box-1-2

Open a cereal box or other food box and the seams and flatten it out.

Rice Krispies Pencil Box-1-3

Cut out this Printable Pencil Case template and place it on top of the flattened box. Trace, and cut it out.

Rice Krispies Pencil Box-1-4

With a pencil, mark the score lines on the cereal box where they are indicated on the template, score, and fold. OR, you can just place the template right on top of the cut out box and score the box right through the paper. Run your scoring tool right along those lines, and then fold.

Rice Krispies Pencil Box-1-5

Fold the pencil case right along those score lines to form box. Tuck the bottom tab inside the bottom of the case and tape into place with a small piece of clear tape. Then place tape along the long side of the case.

Attach the self adhesive hook and loop fastener to the top flap on the inside of the case. Fold it down so that the other side of hook and loop tape attaches to the front of the case.

This case holds 12 pencils.
