An Organizer I Made With Duck Tape

 

I don’t have any big tutorial to show you today but I think you can figure this out for yourself. I recently made myself an organizer with a shoebox, toilet paper rolls and duck tape.

I’ve come to find out though that I have more markers etc. than I have spaces to put them, so as soon as some more toilet paper rolls get saved I’ll fill this box with them. As you can see I chose tape that had paint splatters all over it.

I also made one for a very dear friend of mine. Her favorite color is orange, so I chose a tie dye orange/yellow color. I didn’t have enough toilet paper rolls to complete hers, so I made some squares out of cardboard and used what rolls I had. She now has a place for markers, pens, paper etc.

I plan on putting some goodies in this and giving it to her for Christmas. What do you think? Good gift?

I so love this organizer. I need to make one for my alcohol ink marker and my India ink markers. They are larger than most makers . So they take a lot of space.. Great thinking

Oh Barbara, I have that very same duct tape. I love it (the splotches). I also think the organizer is a great idea, although I store my pens flat. I think it's a wonderful way to save space, too.

Have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy day.

Thank you for the lovely comments! I'm happy to say that my friend loved her organizer and all of the goodies I put in it. I had a great Christmas and hope you all did as well.
