Let's Make: A Pretty Carrier!
I made a couple of carriers for crafting supplies yesterday. You can use them to hold paintbrushes, scissors, glue, yarn, markers, colored pencils, or even eating utensils for a picnic. Glass pasta jars fit perfectly in the compartments.
I used a beer bottle carrier and a wine bottle carrier. I promise we're not alcoholics! The one from World Market is really durable and sturdy (and free).
Since my craft room is not set up yet, I worked on the coffee table and sat down on Bella's dog bed for comfort. She sat with me most of the time. Please ignore the unfolded laundry on the chair.
I chose coordinating cardstock from my stash. Just trace the carrier onto the back of the paper and cut. I used a craft knife and ruler to get clean cuts.
I used adhesive squares to attach the paper because it was faster and easier, but you can also use glue.
Prettier already, yes? The top handle portion required some more measuring and time.
I made a second smaller one that is a good size for a portable marker carrier for kids (if we had any). I made the top edge shorter by cutting two snips and folding the tabs down.
Easy and free!
I'm excited to add these to my shelves for a pop of color. I love pretty storage!
