Origami Pencil Holder

Morning and today I have an origami pencil holder to share,I found the instructions whilst sorting through some old craft mags.The papers are all from Docrafts had them about three years and about time they were used!oddments of cardstock/buttons and metal button top from stash-it was a bit of a tester to see how sturdy it was really-so might make another one with more decoration added.
I have included a link but there are no sizes--I used 20cms sqares of paper and the base is a 5" square of chipboard covered with a square of matching paper.
