Documented Pen Holder by Mabel Sim

January 9, 2018

Hi Everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m back to share with you a off-the-page piece that is really simple to make. I had DIY-ed a pen holder that comes in real handy with my increasing pen collection. I will be sharing with you how I had created this pen holder with Kaisercraft’s new collection Documented.

First, I had started out with a toilet roll that I had gotten from my office janitor as it has a bigger diameter more suitable for a pen holder. I had taken Black acrylic paint from Kaisercolour to paint the exterior and interior of the roll black.

To form the base, I had traced the exterior circumference of the roll on a
scrap piece of cardboard and cut it out.

I had also painted it black followed by apply glue on the circumference such that I can
glued it onto one end of the roll to create the base.

Don’t worry about the open edges as it will soon be covered by burlap strings.

I had also cut a strip of P2460 Library Ephemera (flipped side) while coiling burlap strings
on top and bottom of my pen holder.

Ta-da! The final look after embellishments!

Kaisercraft’s sticker sheet and collectables had made embellishing your work so much easier. There’s no need for fussy cutting and it had made entire crafting process so much faster and convenient.

To tie all elements together, I had brush on white gesso to give it a white wash effect. It also works well as a finishing touch.

That’s all for my short tutorial today.

It is easy and not time-consuming to recreate. I hope you will feel inspired by my project to recreate one of your own and input your style into it. Do share with us your take on this inspiraiton.
