We are officially back to school. Albeit, it was a slow start. I think the kids had more ‘recess’ then actual teaching time but it was the first day. I wanted to make it a special day for them and I must confess I was not as organised as I like to be and I was hit with a nasty sinus/head cold. I made a special little banner that says School Days on it to decorate with.
Then I decided to make the kids these Rolo Pencils. I had seen them awhile ago online and thought they were too cute. Should have pinned them because I could not find how to make them. I looked up the picture of then and winged it. I thought I’d include pictures of the process encase anyone else would like to make them.
Items You’ll Need
Rolos (I used 5 rolls of Rolos)
Paper the colour of a pencil and pink for the eraser
Some type of adhesive (I used glue dots)
I started with the eraser using a nickel I made a circle and cut it out to stick on the bottom of the Rolo roll. Then I cut a thin strip of pink paper to wrap around the end of the Rolos, but first I peeled back a portion of the wrapper to show the gold foil.
I then took my yellowish paper and sized up how thick of a strip I would need to cover the rest of the Rolo. I used my crimping scissors on one end to give the effect of a sharpened pencil. I also creased the paper several times to look a little more like a pencil. Finally I wrapped the Rolo in the paper and there you have it.
