How to make your easy Tin Can Pen Pots
The method for both Pencil Holders is essential the same and super quick and easy (in fact, it is the same as our Kawaii Pen Pots and Minecraft Desk Tidies!). However if you are NOT using the Free Summer Fruits Printables, the initial “assembly” of your paper is different. I create a short video for each design to be made from scratch.. OR you simply use our handy free printable. And you can then fast forward the “first” bit of these videos!
