Hi all, It's Eli here with a fun and easy utensil holder/caddy for those summer parties that are happening right now. Find your favorite 6-pack container, cover and make into something darling. Here is the boring beginning:
And here is my version of something "fun-ctional."
It's not hard to create, you can do it.

Gather some Flavours Gourmet paper. I chose Carmelized Mustard, Candied Blue Violet, and Toasted Nutmeg. (Don't you just love these color names?). Choose some patterned papers to coordinate.
Trim the Carmelized Mustard to fit on the ends of the caddy so there is a small amount of the white showing  on both edges but using the whole length of the paper. Add Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to the end and press the paper on to it with the top edge of the paper following any extra paper edges. Glue the rest of the strip of paper under the caddy.
Fold the upper edge down and glue in place.
Use the same process to cover the front and back with Candied Blue Violet.
With Toasted Nutmeg cut out three circles with letters taken out of the center. I used my Cricut. Then cut one circle just larger than the originals and two a bit larger. Arrange the Toasted Nutmeg
letters on the patterned circles and glue them to the caddy.
Cut strips from patterned paper 12x1-1/2". Create a pleasing pattern by adding them to the handle and around the caddy.
Make the silverware markers by stamping utensils onto the Toasted Nutmeg paper with black ink. I round this fun Hero Arts stamp you see below. I stamped several images so I could choose the best ones.
Trim two of each silverware piece and glue them to both sides of mini clothes pins.
See how it comes together. Pretty fun.
Add some plastic ware and be ready for the party.

Enjoy!!
