It's that time of year again... Back to school... I know some schools have already started and others have a few more weeks.  To help get ready, I thought I'd share these two paper pencil holders.  They actually use these everyday as they hold pens and pencils on my desk. 


This one is my favorite, but it's a little tricky to make.  It's surprisingly stable considering it's just office paper.  I suppose card stock would be better. 


This one is a little wobbly unless you alternate the directions of the pencils it's holding - i.e. they need to criss-cross each other.

If you're interested in making these...
