1) How could something so warped and twisted…
2) …be so cool?!
I love it when my boys draw, but I don’t love tidying up their felt-tip pens afterwards (most of which are normally on the floor). This week’s project, a rather funky looking pen tidy, will hopefully encourage them to tidy up their own pens – I can live in hope!
It is quite a simple one to make, most of the work went in to illustrating the label. I was trying to give the impression that the bottom of the pens had warped and twisted – I’m not sure how obvious that illusion is, but I think the design is still striking in its own right. If you’d like to make one, I have made the artwork available for download, all you’ll need to do is print it out and wrap it around an old tin can. You may want to add a false bottom to lift the pens a little higher, it helps with the illusion. Hope you like it!How to make one
