[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s back to school season, and usually, that means a shopping trip for new binders, notebooks and pencil boxes. But instead of waiting in line for four hours just to get a generic pencil box, why not make your own one? Use recycled t-shirts, jeans, or any other old clothes to make this custom pencil box.

Supplies needed:

  • One piece of cloth, approximately 9”x11”
  • Hot glue gun
  • 9’’ Zipper (These can be found in craft stores. Alternatively, jeans zippers are around this long)
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape
