Colored Pencil Caddy

Colored Pencil Caddy-JMRush
Approximate size: W 5.5” X  H 7.25” X D 3.5”

This caddy is perfect for organizing and keeping up to 24 colored pencils handy. This caddy is perfect for your craft room or to be used as a gift for teachers, artists, or any color book enthusiast. This design is compatible with 8x12 or 12X12 mats.

You can purchase the Silhouette design file here:

1.Cut design pieces. ( I used doubled sided card stock but it’s not necessary)
2. Fold the score lines on the two handle bases. Glue the scalloped handle pieces to the front of each of the handle bases; centering around the coordinating shape of the handle.
3. Apply glue to the backside of one of the combined handle base pieces being careful not to apply glue to the bottom section under the score line. Glue the backsides of the two combined handle bases together.
4. Image of the two bottom sections not glued together:)
5. Flip the caddy box base over ( pretty side down). Fold the score lines on the caddy box base. Apply glue to the backside of the two top tabs. Secure to the panel in the center.
6. Repeat for the bottom two tabs forming a box shape.
7. Apply glue to the bottom sections of the combined handle piece. Center and attach to the inside of the caddy box base.
8. Image of the combined handle glued inside the caddy box base.
9. Flip one set of the pencil box pieces over (pretty side down). Fold the score lines. Apply glue to the backside of the scalloped edge of the smaller pencil box piece. Align with the circles and score lines of the larger pencil box piece and secure.
10. Apply glue to the backsides of the top center and bottom center tabs. Secure to the rectangle shapes above and below to the left of the tabs.
11.  Apply glue to the tabs in the center of the combined pencil box and secure to the large rectangle to the right.
12.  Apply glue to the small tabs and the long tab. The two small tabs fit inside the box and the long tab is also glued inside the pencil box.
13. Image of the tab being secured. Repeat for the other two pencil box pieces.
14. Hint: (I used the end of a paintbrush to help secure the tabs to the inside of the pencil box)
15. I finished with a ribbon:)
