Hi everyone! I have a new post for you guys, but this one is going to be talking about the one thing we dread the most. Cleaning, more specifically, organizing our home.
Listening to Marie Kondo’s “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing”. Inspired me to craft this neat and cute idea from using a basic water bottle, a zipper, and some washi tape.

You will not need much for this project! All you need are water bottle, a sharpie, box cutter or x-acto knife, and a 9 in zipper.
Grab a basic water bottle, and be sure to mark off, with your ruler, 2 inches in. Use a black sharpie to clearly see your lines, you don’t want to cut into this water bottle crooked!
Next, very carefully, cut into the water bottle using an x-acto knife or box cutter depending on how thick the bottle is. Be sure to go slow! You don’t want to hurt yourself.
Then, take a 9 in zipper, and begin hot gluing it between the bottle you cut. The zipper has to be facing outward so you can open and close it, and use a fun bright color to add personality to your pouch!
You won’t need a lot of glue to attach the zipper, just make a line of dots of hot glue.
Once you have the zipper in the pouch, add washi tape of your choice to make the pouch decorative!
Now you have an adorable pouch to hold the small items you can't do without and it is up cycled from an item you usually have in your home!
