Back To School 3D Papercraft

I’ve enjoyed the ‘back-to-school’ shopping ever since I was a child.  I liked getting all of my supplies organized and ready for the year.  I’m still that way with my own children.  (poor kids! Haha!)


Today I want to share with you some cute little desk top pen/pencil holders that will definitely help to make one more studious.


First off is the 3D Locker style pencil box for the student.  They could keep this on their desk at home or their desk at school.  I’m sure all the other children would ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over it – wanting one of their own.


I added a sticker on the front and hung a tag through the locker door slots.

I cut the locker piece out of the Printable Silver foil and then adhered a black rhinestone to the centre of the lock.

The second little box is for the teacher. This holds pencils so neatly on his/her desk and you could even customize the label with their name.  (I opted for a generic phrase/sentiment).

This is very easy to put together and so fun to make with all the different patterned papers that are available these days.

Cari Locken

HI there! I’m Cari Locken from Langley, BC, Canada. I’m a wife and mother of 3 amazing kids! I have been crafting since I was a child and love the creative outlet that this hobby brings to me. My formal training is in the area of music as I have a Masters degree in Music and I am currently teaching Band (to Grades 5, 6 & &) as well as private piano lessons. However I always find time to dig out my scrappy supplies and work on a few projects here & there. I love creating scrapbook layouts, preserving the everyday moments and special memories of our family life as well as creating cards & home decor items . Other than scrapbooking I enjoy spending time watching my children play sports, reading, knitting, photography and cooking. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Silhouette Team!
