|Ribbon Spool Pen Holder|
There's no telling what might capture one's imagination. I know for sure though, spools have been a favorite since childhood. Thus, when two became available I see a neat pen holder with an industrial minimalist look.
I store the third spool's ribbon in a plastic bag in order to free it up for the pen holder. The end paper of one spool is left on to act as a bottom, and in case I glue on a base for weight. If only pens are kept in the holder, then it won't need weight on the bottom.
The old pen holder becomes the other stuff holder... pen level, blade sharpener, markers, pens without refills, and a errant plastic icicle ornament that missed the Christmas decoration's box.
Do you make your own pen holders?
