2. Fold an 8-1/2x8-1/2-inch square of paper into quarters. Open up the shape. Paper-punch a hole in the center of the paper.

3. Referring to the diagrams, fold the corners of the square into the center of Pattern A. Flip the shape over and fold the corners into the center again of Pattern B. Flip the shape over. Draw the Hebrew letters Nun, Gimel, He, and Shin on the four squares.

4. Slip your fingers inside the four square pockets and bring the corners together. Wrap a piece of double-sided tape around the pencil about 2 inches from the sharpened end. Slip the pencil through the hole from the top of the paper shape, press the shape to the tape on the pencil, and then staple the underside folds together. Push the top four squares of the shape toward the pencil.
