I am slowly trying to put together my craft room/office, I started with some frames and board, now I'm working on my sewing table (I will post the process as soon as I'm done), organizing my fabrics and tools.

I have a lot of markers that I wanted to have them close to me,  I didn't like the organizer I had, so I grab some duct tape, pieces of cardboard and a basket to create my own duct tape pen organizer! I already had all of the material so the cost was $0, and it only took me about 45 minutes to pull it together.

I cut stripes of cardboard and place them the way I wanted to divide my basket, I hot glue the pieces together, and finally duct tape the structure. I loved the color of my duct tape so I will me making more duct tape projects soon :)

If you know me, you already know that I am a sucker for flowers, specially non-usual material flowers, so obviously when I though about a way to make my basket pretty,  a flower was the answer! Duct tape flower, with a small yellow button =)

I cut the shape of the pedals, then folded on the middle and place tiny drop of hot glue, grab a paper clip and tape it to a circle. I started by gluing the button to the circle, then I glue all the pedals around the button.

Here is the basket in action, I have tons of room for all my markers now!

I love the fact that if the flower gets dusty, I can just wash it with water and a brush.

Now I need to make and organizer for all my sewing tools! I think I will make more duct tape flowers to make them pretty too.
Would you like me to share how I made the duck tape flower?
