but instead, I was surfing the Net and polishing off the remains of the Pringles. My predilection for this kind of activity (or non-activity depending on your point of view) could well explain the rapidly expanding horizons of my arse and a certain lack of productivity in the studio. However let it not be said that I lack creativity because as I gazed mournfully into the now empty Pringles tube (oh puh-lease - like you have never finished off the Pringles without sharing!), I was struck by what a handy-dandy container it was. I managed to haul myself (and my expanding arse) off the chair in front of the computer to bring you the "I-reached-the-bottom-of-the-Pringles-can Utensil Holder". Enjoy.
Step2. Cut tube to desired shape. I made mine a bit higher at the back 'cos I intend to keep brushes in it and that way the shorter ones won't get lost.
Step3. Fish out some paper/images etc from the folder that is bursting with all that stuff you tear out of magazines and can't bear to throw away. Alternatively, use giftwrap or something.
Step 3. Cut the paper to fit and give the tube a good coat of glue - I love glue sticks 'cos they are not as mesy for clutzy people like me. Stick the paper on.
Step 5. Edit image if necessary. (That really just means cut it out to your liking.)
Step 6. Glue image to front of tube.
Step 8. Plonk utensils/brushes/pencils into container and bask in the satisfaction that comes from the kind of save-the-planet recycling that involves eating Pringles!
