Step 1: Use Origami Paper to Create a Pencil Holder

First of all, take origami paper of any colour of your choice. However, if you have a square sheet then good else take A4 size paper to make it.

Step 2: Convert A4 Size Paper into a Square Paper

First of all, fold the paper from one corner until another corner and flatten it well as you can see in the image below. Further, cut the extra from the base using a medium-sized scissor.

Step 3: Fold the Paper into two Half

First of all, fold the paper into equal half from both sides and make a proper crease on it. After that, you can see four boxes on the paper due to fold. So following that you have to fold the paper into two equal half as you can see in the image below.

Similarly, fold it from the other side also and make a proper crease on each fold.

Step 4: Make Corner Fold 

Here you can see boxes all over the paper due to foldings. However, you have to fold all four corners one by one and flatten it well.

I am taking a green coloured cardstock paper to further outline the rectangular strip. Further, cut it out slowly using a medium-sized scissor. However, you can choose any colour paper of your choice.

Step 9: Insert the Paper Strip Inside the Folding

You have a paper strip which you have cut it above so insert the paper strip cutout slowly in between one end of the paper folding. And further, slowly join both ends as shown in the image below.

NOTE: If you find the paper is longer than needed then trim it off slightly. Further, try to insert it well.

Step 10: Join Both Ends Slowly

Step 11: Making the Star Cut out for Decoration

Take a piece of glitter paper and outline the star. Similarly, cut the star using small scissors. Further, apply a little glue at the backside of the cutout and further stick it at the center of the pencil holder.

You can also use plain colour paper and any other season. However, a star is one of my favorites, so I am making it here. I have used the same star decoration to create paper stockings.

Now apply little glue at the sides of each box one by one and stick to each other slowly. Further, leave to dry for about 5 minutes under the fan and in-room temperature.
