My new CUTE pen storage

I have been blessed to have such sweet men in my life. While my husband was busy painting my file cabinet in Grandpa's garage, my Grandpa was hard at work too.
I found a cute idea from the twoPeas site and decided I wanted my own cute pen storage. My Grandpa took 10 feet of 2inch PVC pipe and cut in down into 4 inch pieces. It was alot of work for him. THANKS GRANDPA!!

The final product

I cut out 4 x 10inch strips of paper. I adhered the patterned paper with spray adhesive, taped the ends and then glued the PVC pipes together with super glue plastic fusion. The back is chipboard. I traced, cut out and glued it for some backing

I made a mini one for Grandma too. She has less pens than I do. I really like the pink I used on hers. Hope she likes it too (She gets it this weekend).
