Upcycled Craft Tool Caddy

By:

Gather up your supplies and create an Upcycled Craft Tool Caddy from Candace Jedrowicz using paper coffee cups. Organization crafts are both fun and practical. Best of all, you don't have to spend a ton on supplies when you use eco-friendly materials like coffee cups.

Materials:

  • Paper and plastic coffee cups – any sizes
  • Cardboard coffee sleeves
  • Aleene’s Tacky Dots
  • Brads

Instructions:

  1. If you’re like me you’ll want to wrap the paper coffee cups in pretty paper, but it’s not important to the construction.Put the sleeve on the cup.

  2. If you are just starting to build your tool caddy, refer to the original project by the link above.  That being said, it’s not rocket science.  It’s the same basic idea, but you’ll be joining the cups without sleeves. Place the cup with sleeve on, where you want to attach it.

  3. Make a pencil mark on the sleeves at the point of contact on both sides.
     
  4. Apply Tacky Dots to the inside of the pencil marks on the sleeves at the top and bottom. Leave the middle clear so the craft knife goes through smoothly.

  6. Using a craft knife, cut a slit in both the cup next to the sleeve and the sleeve.Wiggle the blade back and forth to open the slit slightly.  This will help you get the brad through easily.
