I have a fun little tutorial up on the May Arts blog last week. How fun is this?
Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to show you a quick and easy way to organize your pens. I use a clipboard at work every day and I am always either losing my pens or my papers are flying around all over the place. So I made these easy elastic and ribbon pen organizers that not only hold my pens but also hold my papers in place.
My clipboard is the standard that holds 8.5”x11” papers. I cut 18” of elastic and sewed the ends together. I then took a 14” piece of ribbon folded in half with the ends in the center back. I put a decorative lace over the top and then sewed this down to my elastic. I then sewed the ribbon down in about 1” increments this is the loops that will hold my pens. Voila you are done. How cute are my clipboards now? And I will always have a pen handy.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today, make sure you check back often for a ton of inspiration from this very talented team.
