This DIY idea is actually brought to you by my brother, Lawrence. He's great at recycling objects and putting them to a practical use. Since he doesn't have a blog of his own (although he should), I thought I'd feature his idea here. This project costs a cup of coffee (just make sure you keep the actual cup!) and it's perfect for people who always lose things... like me.
3 Simple Steps to your own Coffee Cup Knick-Knack Holder:
1. Drink your coffee, then clean your cup!
2. Use scissors and cut around the cup (about 1/3 from the bottom)
3. Place the small section into the larger section...
...and now you've got a reusable container to store all your odds and ends! My brother uses his to keep important receipts, cards, and loose slips of paper. I would probably use mine for earring studs, buttons, and paperclips.
