Potty For Pen Pots!!

I don't usually worry about the tidiness of MY SPACE as its just that and I'm the only one who needs to find what I'm looking for but with the soon to arrive Spectrum Noir pen collection to add to my table I needed to make a little space and decided there was no longer room for the assorted decorated pots.

 So I made this instead!!  

 No It's no toilet roll tubes but a parcel tube which I have cut down into
12cm sections, I had to use a Hack saw which was a bit scary with Aiden holding one end still!! 
I then glued the sections together then painted inside & out with white acrylic paint. 
I have decorated with Prima "Alla" paper's and added ribbon, lace from my stash.
I've topped my pen holder off with a few flower's from Wild Orchid Crafts 
and a Marianne Design die cut Butterfly 

And as you can see a much neater Craft table!!

Today's challenges are:

Crafting for All Seasons ~ Thing's with Wings!
Paper Play ~ Flower's & Lace.
Inspire Me Friday  ~ Anything Goes!
Craft My Life ~ Anything but a Card/Scrapbook page.
