I made a crocheted cover for a can to keep some pens on the lazy Susan for my roommate.

It occurred to me that pens could be stored on the outside and something else could be on the inside. My first thought was flowers and as it turned out, they were pens, too!

You could put a tall notepad inside, with scissors and/or other tall office supplies. Paint brushes would work, or craft scissors with felt pens, etc.


Just cover the can with wall paper, contact paper, or paint it. You can wrap it with fabric strips, but just make sure that what you cover it with is thin so the pens work. And of course you have to have pens with the clips. N-JOY!!

Great tip, Sandi! When I was a kid we made pen and pencil holders from soup cans wrapped in yarn. You just encircle the can with yarn, tie a knot and then wrap around the can.


Then knot it again when you're done. Obviously you could change colors or wrap with ribbon or other things, add buttons or gems for extra fun. Very simple craft for kids or grownups. :)

Well, the pen holder is nice, but the picture, the whole affair is so elegant, so well color coordinated. Did you ever have designs on being a designer?
