There are so many boring organizational aids. And while the choices for pretty organizers has come a long way in the last decade or two, nothing eliminates the boredom like a repurposed, highly personalized item on your worktop. I found this utensil caddy at Target in the picnic/BBQ section. With three sections on one side of the handle and one open section on the other, it makes the perfect place for my tools and notebooks.
It wasn’t long before the Mod Podge and fabric were out. A short time later, it was ready to be put to good use. For the Mod Podge I used the Hard Coat formula. For fabric, Jane Sassaman’s Garden Divas in the Dragonfly Check print. A little black grosgrain ribbon was the final touch.
To keep my scissors from scratching up the bottom I placed a foam can insulator inside one section. A hot beverage to-go cup sits inside another and keeps the pens, brushes, etc. corralled and upright.
If you haven’t opened up the Mod Podge yet this summer, this is a great project to undertake.
