Help your kids stay organized as they return to the classroom with this creative pencil case inspired by the bold fruity flavors of Juicy Juice.
- Felt (pink, green and black)
- Kid-friendly scissors
- Thin ribbon
- Hot glue gun (to be used by adults only)
NOTE: Whenever these steps call for hot glue to be applied, make sure you give the hot glue 10-20 minutes to dry before continuing on.
First, measure and cut out a 10½ inch wide piece of green felt and pink felt. Make sure you trim any excess felt with scissors.
Next, take your green felt and make a ½ inch fold along the shorter sides, securing it with hot glue. Do the same with your pink felt.
Now, put the pink felt over the green, leaving about 2 inches of green felt to fold over. Hot glue this fold and trim off the excess green so that it lines up with the pink
Then, flip the pencil case over, you should now have a flap of pink felt sticking up over your green felt. Take a 4–inch long piece of ribbon and glue it to the underside of your pink flap, around 1 inch from the edge.
Once you’ve glued your ribbon on, take it and fold the pink felt flap over the green. Use your finger or a pencil and make a note of where the ribbon lands and glue down a button with a dollop of hot glue.
Make a loop out of your ribbon and glue a small piece of scrap felt over the bottom of your loop, this will help keep it in place.
Finally, take your black felt piece and cut out small seed shapes, gluing them to your pink felt front of your pencil case.
If you happen to have felt adhesive letters laying around, you can personalize the pencil case.
