Cupcake Craft Challenge - Altered Item



This week over on
Cupcake Craft Challenges it's my turn to set the challenge, and I chose "altered item". I used a tea box and some cardboard tubes to make a pen storage box. I've been storing my pens in a pot, but have noticed a lot of other people recently saying that they should be stored horizontally, not vertically, so I came up with this idea!
I covered the box and rolls with some wallpaper that I picked up from some random harware store, and thought it would make a nice covering for this box!

Hi Jenny, what a fab idea :-) Mine are in a drawer and I have to root through them to find the colour I need, this is much more user friendly :-)
