Pens, Markers, & Pencils Organized!

Hope you had a great St. Paddy's Day!  If you follow me on IG {instagram} then you have seen my dilemma with organizing my daughters many writing utensils in a way that she will keep it organized.  Oh, a did I mention, it had to be on the CHEAP!
I ended up with this.  She likes it and so far it has been working.  Which means I like it!
It seems like at the end of every school year this pile gets bigger.  If you know me, you know I like to recycle.  Here's what you need:
1.  Empty nose tissue box
2.  15 Toilet paper rolls or 8 paper towel rolls
3.  Paper {I used wrapping paper from $1 bin at T}
4.  Adhesive {I used modge podge}
Pretty easy to put together.

Looks pretty easy, right?  My 9 year old even helped.  I covered one side of the toilet paper rolls with paper as well.
Love that she is keeping everything in this diddy then scatter everywhere through her room.
