Pencil Cups

I got this idea from Jessica at How About Orange. At work they always throw away these cans the had some kind of grease or glue or something you generally need for cars and I thought it would be perfect! Cleaned out, of course. Here's what happened.

I now realize that I should have actually put pencils in the cups, but its all good. The one on the left was one of Jessica's ideas, cutting holes in the felt and putting various colors behind it. The one on the right says TOYOTA even though you can't really see it. I work at a Toyota dealership and I put this out on the service counter since the one we had was covered in paper.

The cup on the left is 'chunkier' than what I thought it would be, but looking back at Jessica's design she used mostly fabric for the design in the holes. That'll be my craft cup though, if I need to make more, I know what to do!

Well, I just wanted to show these off! :) If you want to see Jessica's tutorial click here.
