Read more to see the versatility of this project.
If you have kids or grandkids, you may even go through more hot chocolate than we do.
This project is a way to start of the year gently with a project that is easy, very useful and involves reusing and recycling and there is no sewing required!
This project is a no brainer and I can thank my sister Alison for the idea. Thanks Alison!
Originally, Alison gave me the idea of making an eye glass organizer with these empty containers. If you are like us and at an age when we have multiple drug store glasses everywhere, then you would find this idea useful.
See the picture below:
Don't you just love the above "quilty" pattern? I am truly obsessed! Sorry, I cannot find the source for this but I think I purchased it at Walmart?
To make the striped scissor/tool organizer shown you will need:
The inspiration for the colours in this hot chocolate container/organizer was fabric for roman shades I am making for my sewing studio see the fabric below:
1) Tear the label off your hot chocolate container and recycle the paper! If you cannot get the paper off thats ok as it will get covered. The fabric nd glue will just adhere better to the matte cardboard.
It is that simple!
You have now recycled something, avoided the landfill and made a new purpose for it!
Make this in colours to suit your sewing room.
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy project.
Happy Tuesday! 😊
