How to make pencil stand from old magazines

Spring is finally approaching, and with it comes a familiar sound… the thud of a new phone book landing on the front porch. In our area, Jo and I are inundated with as many as 4 or 5 new phone books every Spring, from different publishers all trying to compete in the advertising biz. Of course nobody needs that many phone books, and I usually just toss all but one of them in the recycling bin, but this year I decided to try to upcycle one of them into something fun. I managed to turn one into a quirky and unique pen/pencil stand that’s a real conversation piece on my desk!


Materials and tools for making the stand:

– A guide or directory.

– Aluminum T-shaped ruler

– A sharp knife

– Clip
