1. Start with shaping 50 colored pencils and give them an equal size by shaping every pencil to reach to the minimum point and the same length.

2. Now, hold all the sharpen color pencils into a tight bunch and arrange them by holding the bunch against the table.

3. Round a rubber band around the pencils, role one or two times, depending upon how tight is your bunch of pencils.

4. Take the fabric ribbon and wrap it around the yellow pencils and make sure the rubber band is not visible. Tie the ribbon and give it bow shape to make it look more classic. You can even draw a message to your guests by drawing two parallel lines on a note-card and writing the message and then placing the same under the ribbon of the bouquet.

5. Repeat the same procedure with the colored pencils and wrap the same color fabric ribbon around the bunch. You can also use pencils that have printed messages on it to give it a personal touch. For a bouquet vase, you can use a pencil cup and decorate the bouquet vase according to the color of your pencil.
