When gluing the paper to the top of the cardboard tube, make four cuts in the paper with scissors and glue each one inside the tube. After capping all the tubes, apply hot glue on their side to mount the pencil holder. To secure the bow and it does not run the risk of falling, pass a little hot glue on the back of the pencil holder, stick the satin ribbon on it and give a beautiful bow.
