Directions

1

Cut the yellow construction paper in half lengthwise to form two 4.25" x 11" pieces. Then cut a 1" x 11" strip of gray paper and and a 1" x 11" strip of pink paper.

2

To form the ridges of the pencil, fold five vertical creases in the yellow paper, about a quarter inch apart. Leave the excess.

3

Lay the gray and pink papers overlapping the longer length of the yellow paper. (The pink should overlap both the gray and yellow paper.) Give the pencil a practice roll to ensure the pieces line up correctly.

4

Once your papers are aligned, fasten the entire length of the seams between the pieces of paper with tape.

5

Wrap the paper pencil wrapper around a tube of ROLO® Creamy Caramels in Rich Chocolate Candy. Trim the excess paper, then use a few glue dots to seal the tube shut, forming your finished pencil.

6

Use another glue dot to attached a HERSHEY'S HUGS Candy to form the point of your pencil.
