The other day I finally got around to using a fun kit I bought a while back, which makes Pringles (or similar sized snack tubes) into a castle desk tidy.
Of course you don’t need a kit to make one, you could simply print out any design to decorate your tidy and use whatever embellishments you liked.
You will need:
- 1x Pringles 190g Tube
- 2x Pringles 40g Tube
- 1 x Sheet of Card
- Glue/Double-sided Tape
- Craft Knife
First, cut the 190g tube so that it is slightly taller than the 40g tubes using a craft knife. Then wrap your chosen design around the tubes. You can use glue to stick your design to the tubes, but I much prefer to use double-sided tape.
Position your tubes on a piece of sturdy card and draw around the tubes, then decorate and cut the card to the shape you want. Attach your tubes to the base (again, I prefer double-sided tape) then add your embellishments and finishing touches… Voilà! one desk tidy:
