PENCIL BOX DIRECTIONS

The pencil box can be used for so many purposes. With school about to start, this would make a great gift. The pattern can be printed directly to the backside of your cardstock, cut and assembled. Cut the black lines and score the red ones. The directions for assembling are printed directly on the pattern. If you have any questions just ask. I am happy to help you.
