Materials Required

Used Cardboard, old packaging material which could be anything from a colorful paper bag to an attractive magazine cover (Baskin Robbins paper bag used here), glue, ruler, cutter.


The image above is shown for reference. Feel free to explore more interesting shapes and designs for the penholder. You could also try painting the cardboard, along with the old packaging décor.


  1. Cut the cardboard and make an appropriately sized penholder frame.
  2. Take the packaging material and cut it into 1cm wide strips. Keep in mind the dimensions required for your holder, while deciding the length of the strips.
  3. Use the strips to create an abstract pattern on the bare cardboard.
  4. Stick the frame together to make your very own penholder!
