Pintrest - DIY pencil organizer

As much as I loved our little plastic pencil cup, it was starting to get a little crowded. I found a DIY "marker caddy" on Pintrest that I found to be very easy! My version is a little different but the idea is basically the same.

I took an empty puzzle box (the puzzle I finished a few weeks ago and glued it together), some paper towel and toilet paper rolls, cut them up, and stuck them inside the box. Initially, I didn't have enough cardboard rolls to fill up the whole box and the pencils and pens couldn't hold themselves up. Until I found one more paper towel roll hidden in another shoe box my temporary solution was to paper clip all the rolls together and to the box. Voila!
