DIY: Pen Holder

There are artists here in the Philippines that I really admire (and envy) for their first-rate art skills. To name some would be: 1.) the creative dork, Aseo. He is undeniably, one of the greatest illustrators/digital artists to date; and, 2.) Kerby, one of the most talented sketch masters I've ever known.

I've been following these artists since time immemorial and even created some artworks inspired by them. I've done vectors and vexels before. And I know it would take years of practice before I get on par with Aseo. But at least, I tried. :)

Anyway, today (actually, not just today), Kerby inspired me to doodle. I saw his DIY Pen holder and thought I'd make one too.

I feel a little creative. Hence,
DIY Pen Holder 
Creating one doesn't really require instructions because all you have to do is just draw from a blank sheet of paper (I used one that's used for business cards btw), glue it on the empty can of pringles, and voila! :)
Materials used. Empty can of Pringles, of course!


The best thing about doodles is that anything goes. And you can never go wrong with cute monsters. 

I know it's not as awesome as Kerby's. But hey! I've got one cute pen holder here. Woot! :)

Materials used: Blank paper, a pair of scissors to cut your paper according to the size of your can, empty can of Pringles (or any can that you prefer), glue, pens and markers for doodling.

  1. Amazing idea. I also like recycling. Keeping used jars to create penholders. I use washi tapes and ribbons. I will also try using doodles next time :)

    1. I've been looking for washi tapes, but one with rustic design (i hope there is). Most washi tapes sold here are cutesy ones. Thanks for dropping by! :)
