Recycle - TP pencil/scissors holders

LOVE, LOVE this project!
If you follow my blog, you know by now that I love to recycle things!
 It is so much fun to make something out of nothing! I am reorganizing my craft room and trying to make my containers out of recycled items.
So, what you do with TP roll, cardboard box and scrap fabric?
You make this:

TP rolls, cardboard box, fabric and hot glue gun

Glue the fabric around your cardboard box.

Glue the fabric around you TP roll.

Glue the TP rolls to the box and you are done! How simple is that?

This is how it looks in my soon to be craft room! 
Take a sneak peak of what I have done so far and let me know what you thing! :)

  1. love the entire grouping - this could be perfect for a little girls room too!!! can I recommend you try a tool called Quick Snippers by
    I noticed all the scissors you have - this one is 6 in one.
    but totally love what you did here - I make flowers out of the TP/PT rolls

  2. Gorgeous idea! Love it and I am bookmarking it! :) I have a stash of pens on my kitchen counter inside a little box, this would look so much cuter! Thanks for sharing!
