The packaging of colour pencils is unique, as it is retained by the user since it provides convince of selecting the required colour pencil. But, while providing this freedom, the colour pencil boxes occupy a lot of space when they are placed open on the working table. This often results in shifting the colour pencils different box or a pencil stand.

This packaging is designed to store a set of “36 watercolour pencils” and it comes with an integrated stand. It caters towards two primary problems; space occupied by colour pencil boxes whilst offering the freedom of selecting the pencil of the required colour and the durability of boxes in the long run. This packaging comes with storage space for a sharper and a water brush pen.
