Chinese Paper Pencils

I first STUMBLED on this craft on ‘scissor paper wok’. On the website there is a great tutorial for making these amazing pencils¬† from origami paper and 2mm HB pencil leads.

I ordered some leads and pretty origami paper from eBay and waited for the mail to arrive.

After a few days they arrived and I got to work!

I quickly realised after 3 broken leads how gentle you have to be.

Ok, so mine don’t look much like the original inspiration but I was very pleased with them.

Do you like the detail I added of a gem perched on the end?
