The organised pencil box

Pens, pencils and markers were all over the place and something needed to be done to regain some semblance of control. Enters the Pencil box :

We had a great time emptying all boxes, pencil cases and bags and filling the boxes colour by colour. I would recommend it for all you OCD sufferers out there !

I had seen various versions of this project on Pinterest and always wanted to make one. For the box, I used an old timber wine presentation box that I covered with an old map applied using Modge Podge. I also applied 3 coats of Modge Podge over the paper to seal and protect it. The tubes on the inside are regular toilet paper cardboard tubes. It was very quick (apart from the drying time of the glue) and easy and Lucie is very happy with the result.
