By the way, I have also written a blog about origami pen holders for kids. I am sure you will love it.

Step 1: Make Use of Origami Paper to Create a Pencil

Use any colour of origami paper and also if you would like to make a big size pencil then take a larger size of paper. That will help you to make your craft easier.

NOTE: Make sure you are using single-sided coloured paper.

Step 2: Let’s Make First Fold to Create a Pencil

First of all, if you are using A4 size paper then cut that paper into equal half. Further, flip the paper and fold the base from each side about 2cm as you can see in the image below.

Step 3: Fold the Paper into Equal Half

Now you have to fold the paper into equal half properly and then make a proper crease on it.

Step 4: Make Corner Fold

Further, fold the paper from the corner until the center line and flatten it well by putting a finger pressure on it.

Step 5: Fold the Sides of the Paper

After the corner fold, you have to make another fold the same way from both sides. While folding makes sure that the tip is pointed well.

Step 6: Fold the Paper Until the Top 

Now once the side folding is done then flip the paper and fold the bottom of the paper until the top. As you can see in the given image below.

Step 7: Flip the Paper and Fold the Sides of the Paper Closer

 Now, you have to flip the paper and fold both sides closer as you can see in the image below.

Step 8: Make Use of Glue

I am using glue here so folds should not open by itself. Just apply little glue on one side of the paper and place the other side of the paper.

Step 8: Use any shape Cutout to Stick it on the Pencil

This is not really important however if you do not want you can skip this process. I am just using a round shape cutout to stick it at the center of the pencil.
