Anything but a card!!

Hello fellow crafters 
Hope all is well
Todays weather is a little brighter with the sun
Popping in and out no rain and not so cold
Thank you for popping by
l'd like to share my Pen/Pencil holder where l got the idea from Jo

Simply used empty gravy containers 
Add some designer papers and stick together with quality glue
Add ribbon/pens/pencils and this is the finished item
