Here are the simple steps to creating your own personalized pencil case!

Step 1

First place a piece of cardboard cut to size inside your pouch.  This will help make sure the pen doesn’t bleed onto the opposite side.  It will also make drawing easier if there is a zipper on one side.

Step 2

On the front of your pouch use a ruler to draw writing lines (two solid with a dashed on in the middle).

Have your kiddo write their name on the lines.

Step 3

Flip the pouch over and let them go to town.  It might be helpful to have your kid  practice their design on a piece of paper first.  You can suggest a back to school theme or just let their imagination run wild.

Step 4

Remove the cardboard, fill with freshly sharpened pencils, and don’t forget to put it in that new back pack!

Hurry, grab a Sharpie and make sure your kid has the coolest pencil pouch in class!
