DIY Pretty Pen Pots

I have been having way too much fun
decorating my new office. Recently I stumbled across Torie Jayne’s Pretty Pen Pots Tutorial and immediately ate 3 cans of green beans. Not only is this project super simple,
it is inexpensive yet makes a huge statement. 

So here we go… 

You Will Need:

– Empty
tin can(s)

– Scrapbook

– Double
sided sticky tape

– Scissors

– Glue {optional}Step
3 cans worth of food. Wash and dry the empty tin cans very well. Step 2: Using the label from the can as
a template, trace and cut out a piece of scrapbook paper the size of your can. Step 3: Add strips of double sided
tape to your paper and roll onto can. Step 4 {Optional}: Seal the end of the strip with a dab of glue. Step 5: Fill with pretty pens!

Since I am a complete freak about office supplies, I tend to purchase the largest colorful assortments I can find of pens and highlighters. So maybe you only need to make one pretty pen pot because you don’t buy highlighters by the dozen. I, on the other hand, could have filled 12 pots with a variety of writing utensils. Ridiculous, I know.

I absolutely adore my pretty pen pots! They make my office look so happy!

After I saw this I literally tried to think of a recipe that used a ton of cans. I think I'm going to make a couple in varying sizes (big canned tomatoes for all the Sharpies and a little one for paper clips). Thanks for the inspiration
