How To: Make Your Own Paper Pencils

by on May 10, 2012

I thought these DIY paper pencils would fit in quite nicely with the “art” theme we’re rocking this month. The possibilities are as endless and pretty and artsy as you want them to be!   

The tutorial is for regular graphite, but you could easily create your own colored pencils, too. Just get your hands on the 2mm lead of your choice, grab some pretty paper* and your trusty bottle of ModPodge, then head over to Scissors.Paper.Wok for the complete tutorial!

I love the idea of making and giving these as gifts (maybe along with some pretty stationery) to crafty friends, writers and avid journal-ers, teachers, or anyone who appreciates lovely handmade things! Who would you give them to?

*This is would be a great way to use up odd bits of scrapbook paper you might have lying around!
