Ways to do it!!

Step 1 : Start to prepare toilet roll core 2 pieces, but as you know only one toilet roll core don’t have enough length for put pencil or pen. So, we had to use two tissue paper cores and cut another one into two parts by a split it at a 1: 3. Then bring the longer one that was already cut stick with first one that you didn’t cut it by adhesive tape. This step you’ll get 2 the tissue paper cores as long size and short size.


Step 2: Wrapped the longer piece of tissue paper cores from step 1 by flannel fabric and also left the end of the flannel for sewing. For the short one, you can do the same and cut the short size of flannel out, then stick 2 pieces of flannel together by zipper as picture below.


Step 3: Fold the flannel fabric along the length with side connect fit each other which seam zipper will outside. Then put pins and sew the flannel together along the length. After that return the flannel that already sewed from inside to outside and put tissue paper cores in middle of the sewed flannel and stick it by glue, as picture below.


Step 4: Cut the 2 pieces of cardboard in same size of a circle of a tissue paper core, then measure new piece of flannel fabric by the cardboard circle and cut it again.
