A super great idea from Fee Fie Foe Fum!
Its a Zoo in here! But it does not have to be if you upcycle a soda bottle caddy into a fun and cheerful art supply caddy. You can make your own or stop by her store and order this one already made!
Here's the DIY tutorial:
Grab your Mod Podge (I used gloss), designer scrapbook paper ( I used My Mind's Eye, Alphabet Soup Boy, "Animal Kingdom" paper and die cuts), various strands of fabric ribbon, ric rac, and your basic supplies like a straight cutter, scissors, and bone file.
Get your brush and Mod Podge and apply Mod Podge on the back side of each sheet of paper and apply to your caddy.
Once your caddy is completely covered, use your bone folder to rub each side lightly to get out any air bubble and also bush away any drips or excess Mod Podge. Let dry for about a half an hour or longer.
Next, apply Mod Podge over the entire surface of the decorated box, including the inside cup/bottle areas. This helps to give it a sturdy plastic appearance and the strengthen the handle and supply holders. Plus the great thing about Mod Podge is it acts as a finishing glaze and will really brighten the colors in your paper once it drys.
Add Mod Podge to any of your cut out's or chipboard embellishments too! Let everything dry for about another hour.
Finish off by adhering your ribbon to both the front and back sides and adding your embellishments and cut-outs. I use double sided peelable tape from Stampin' up for all my ribbon on projects! It works great and does not create a sticky mess.
Now you are ready to fill up your finished caddy with school supplies, desk accessories, or take it on a picnic and stick your Ketchup and Mustard containers and plastic ware in the pockets! It is perfect on the go!
