DIY Kitchen Caddy

Presenting yet another craft obsession of mine: Upcycling soup cans! Seriously, there is no limit to the things you can do with soup cans. Check out this awesome kitchen caddy and hopefully you'll be inspired to get your upcycle on too!
I think I have taken this whole upcycling of the soup can too far. It's like I became obsessed. I wouldn't give up until I found every possible way to make the soup can awesomely functional. Totally not my personality to be compulsively obsessed with things. I lie. I lie. I lie.

      Pampered Chef (& other brands I'm sure) sell can openers that open and seal the edges so no one can get cut.
