Draw with the edding 750 paint markers on the outside of the plastic bottle, using these pens are fun and teh color is more opaque than regular markers.

Step 4

Punch holes at a regular distance with the hole puncher. You can also do by melting hole with a hot metal stick. As working with the children I found that the hole puncher is easy for them to use.

Step 5

Sew around the bottle two round for all the hole to be sewn in.

Step 6

Thread the 2 ribbon  strips in the top fabric fold with a safety pin. Each ribbon strip has go fully around each on starting from the other side form each other. So that you can pull each side and the pencil case closes.

Add decorative beads at the end of the theads and tie both ends together so that they don’t disapear inside the fabric.
