A Kitsch Storage Solution or two...

Hi's my turn to post over on the Craftwork Cards Blog today...a chance for me to have some fun with the gorgeous new Kitsch Collection...the papers in this collection are bright fun and so very kitsch but what was I going to make...well us crafters are always on the hunt for storage solutions and if you are anything like me...I'm a "place for everything and everything in it's place" kind of a girl otherwise I spend hours looking for stuff so with that in mind I dug some empty cans out of the recycling bin and set to work making a co-ordinating desk set...
I used die cut chipboard circles covered with paper from the Kitsch Paper Pad for the top and bottom of the can...cut a hole for the scissors using a Sizzix Circle Die...punched a small hole to feed the string through and decorated with a Kusudama flower...never again will I have to hunt for that elusive ball of string...
 and what about a pot to hold all your pens...paintbrushes or whatever...
decorated with die cut shapes and flowers from the Kitsch Die Cuts Pad...272 Assorted Die Cut Shapes more than enough for you to go to town and make lots of storage pots...
 and a notepad made from 300gsm cardstock using a template from an old telephone message pad...
 decorated with cute candi flowers and a bow...
 amazing what you can do with a few old soup cans...
I'm now on a crafty storage roll so time to decorate the pot that holds my Fiskars Fabric Scissors to complete the matching Kitsch Cubbyhole huh...
My lovely buddy Mary from The Ribbon Girl is celebrating a very special birthday today
