How to make a Polar Bear Desk Tidy or Pencil Pot
If you have made one of our many Tin Can Pencil Pots before, you will know what a super quick and easy 5 Minute Craft this is!! I have, as per usual, a quick Polar Bear Desk Tidy Video How To for you, but also added written instructions for you below! Enjoy!
How to make a Polar Bear Desk Tidy or Pencil Pot – STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
Begin by measuring out your white paper for your Polar Bear’s body.
I find wrappingt the paper around the tin can and creasing it a little, gives you the perfect cutting guide lines. You can of course also get a ruler out!!!
Cut 2mm to inside of your crease. Check against your tin can that you have the correctly sized rectangle.
Time to make your polar bear’s details
The polar bear really is quick and easy to make and we will use similar details as we did for the Polar Bear Bookmark Corner – some ears, a mouth piece and the rest add in in black pen.
Cut out two ears in white. And do “smaller ears” in light blue to glue onto the larger ears.
Cut out and oval and draw on a nose and mouth.
Stick onto your polar bear’s body and add some eyes in black pen.
Finally assembly of the polar bear desk tidy.
Add a little tape to the width of the white paper and tape to the tin.
Cut a second piece of tape.
Wrap the white paper as neatly as you can around the tin can and tape in place.
