Organization: Repurposed Pen Box

It occurred to me that I am in a dire need of pen storage when I could not keep track of pens I have inked.  The easier way would be getting one, but I realized that I have many sturdy boxes that I just do not have the heart to toss away.  The idea I came up is to add some cushion to the interior of the box so the pens can be stored without major scratches, in additional to beautify the boxes with some used wrapping paper.
As for the cushion, I used some scrap yarn that I have to knit a piece of fabric, then fold a section up to sew in the compartments.

  1. I know smoking is not good but usually I am asking empty cigar boxes to friends, neighbors. Yes, you right otherwise will be pricey. But its a nice idea to search it into the flea markets.Now I found on Richard Binder Master's web site nice boxes ready to use around 25 or 28$,http://www.richardspens.com/?page=accessories/boxes.htmhttp://cigarboxpenstorage.wordpress.com/category/display-box/http://jehubbard.com/hobbies/oliva_boxes.htmAnd I seen already that some people sell it often on Ebay.Warm Hugs&Paws from Turkey

  2. Thank you, Richard, for stopping by! It is such a waste to throw away a perfectly sturdy box. Now I am wondering how else I can make the pen slots for those of us who can't knit. I will post some ideas when I come up with them.
