To make these pom pom pens & holder you need:
fabric 2.5″ x 20″
fabric 1″ x12″
can without a sharp edge
glue & hot glue
All we did to make the “Pencil Holder” was glue a strip of scrapbook paper around the can. Of course you can get super cute with die cuts, vinyl, ribbon, buttons, and ric rac – but we are keeping it simple for 3rd graders!!!
Next we needed to wrap the gift. Wrapping 46 gifts can add up – so I went the brown paper bag route! I bought doilies and cut them in half. The learners glued the doily to the front, placed the gift inside & wrapped the outside with variegated pink cotton yarn! Done!
I was exhausted when I came home from making this craft at school. I don’t know how teachers do it. They are amazing people!!
