We are already on the school wave. This year we have made a pencil holder, out of a small child’s rubber boot, and a textbook box, using the papier-mache technique. We used the pages of an old and not so valuable book to cover our objects.

An old rubber boot (No. 24) served as a basis. The pages of an old book and diluted water-based glue served us too. The good thing is that when you are ready with the pencil-holder you can use the rubber boots again as a shoe.

We left the sole uncovered so that we could take out the boot easily. Child's Boot Pencil Holder Papier-MâchéWhen it is well dried up, the boot comes out very easily. If it seems thin to you, you may repeat the procedure, putting a second layer of torn paper.Child's Boot Pencil Holder Papier-MâchéWe cut a cardboard sole for the open part of the boot and covered it with torn pieces of paper, too.

We draw different pictures with watercolours on the pages, and when they dried up we glued then onto the boot.

We made the textbook box in the same way, using an empty box of wine.
