Friday Craft, Upcycled Storage Part 2

Upcycled storage part deux! Today I will show you some of my many alternative forms of storage.

I do enjoy my Tic Tacs, and they are perfect containers for jewelry making supplies and other bits and bobs. I try to make sure I take the sticker off as soon as possible, though, because if you leave the sticker/label on too long, the odds of removing it without leaving sticky crap behind diminish.

Toilet paper rolls! Who knew?! I use these to keep all my pens, scissors, brushes, etc, upright in their larger storage container. It also makes sorting them much easier.

The above is a cereal box! I know! Cut with an xacto knife and wrapped in duct tape, it’s perfect for corralling my bigger paper craft projects and sorting some collage materials.

How do you upcycle?
