Please, notice that this project and the templates are designed for corrugated cardboard which is 4 mm thick. You also need a glue stick, craft knife, and metal ruler. Click on the icons below to download the three-part template. Print all parts on the unprinted side of used office paper.

Mount the shape of the pencil box on your cardboard as shown in the picture below. If you are recycling the cardboard, try to use the fold lines you already have and align them to the dashed lines on your mounted shape.

With the help of the ruler, cut all the black lines. Be accurate. Don’t let your eyes be misled – no polygon has the same width or hight here. Place the ruler on the drawing when possible, so that if your blade slips, it will cut into the waste card around the outside of the drawing. Fold all the dashed lines. Before folding, make a crease – a scalpel or craft knife is an excellent tool for this.

Glue the B flap to the A shape.

Fold the bottom of your box and glue flap C and D.

Now, the way this works is quite simple. And yet, quite extremely radical as well – You need two screws in the wall, a wooden bar fixed with those screws, your cardboard boxes on this bar and finally pencils in the boxes. Just in case you haven’t yet, we suggest you go here and buy a wall bar. Oh, and of course, feel free to share your Instastyle using #kokimiloki.
