Everyone is jealous of pencil, especially Eraser. Pencil and his friends are thought of as the cool and creative ones. Eraser looks up to all the other supplies for the exciting things they can do: glue brings people together and paper makes people feel like they can do anything. The other supplies tease Eraser by saying she is only good for cleaning up their mess. Eraser decides she is meant for something more and leaves the group.
She finds herself in a recycle bin with the first drafts of paper. They are so excited to see her and explain are big fans. Eraser learns that she is the reason people get second chances because she helps people fix their mistakes. When Eraser heads back to the team she finds they are really struggling. Thankfully she is able to help them fix the mistakes and they finish the science project as a team.
