Another quick craft featuring recyclables and Mod Podge today. Remember the bottle
I used for my vase? Well, it came in a handy little holder, of course, so why not reuse that, too? Grab yourself a drink caddy (one from the drive-thru would be perfect, too), some Mod Podge, paintbrush, and some fun scrapbook paper.
Trace and cut the pieces to fit on your caddy (you'll want to make separate pieces for the sides that fold up. Apply a layer of MP, smooth a piece over, and apply MP over the paper. After you put on all the pieces (the handle too) fold over any edges, and add a last layer of MP. I put in a couple of jar lids to keep my supplies from slipping out the openings around the bottom.
You could also hot glue the center separator to the bottom so that it no longer folds, or just keep it as is (that's what I did).
Now just add your supplies and your good to go! Use for car trips, the kids' craft desk, or your own sewing table--you can use it however you'd like. Be sure to share yours in my Flickr group
--I'd love to share some reader projects on the blog!
