What can you make out of Rubbish?

Morning, So rubbish, quite. I had two of these tins from Christmas and I knew they would come in handy I just didn't know for what. Any way if you look at any of my WOYWWs you will see two white baskets and they do take up a fare amount of room. I was feeling locked in at my desk so, I have had a little move around and created some more space using these tins. Before all my copic pens were in the basket, not very good I can't see them and when it comes to using colours they weren't easy to get hold of or even see which colours I had. Here's what I created.

So, what do you think? they didn't take ages to make but I thought they were a quick fix to a problem I had. And they look lovely (to me any way) and cost nothing to make it's all scraps and bits and all my copics JUST fit so come Christmas I may have to eat some peanuts for my new copics ha ha. 

Oh I wanted to tell you I am having a little give away on my other blog Journal Journey's so pop over for the details. It's always fun reading your comments and visiting your blogs. Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to. Love Dawn xx

Great idea - what a beautiful transformation! I collect that sort of thing, too, but don't often actually get around to transforming it. I must get moving on that, LOL!
