Organizing the Pens and Pencils: Pencil Cups and More

pen pot with dragon

I'm still a fan of taking some of those more-than-you'll-ever-use coffee mugs and turning them into pencil cups. But if you're one of the few people without spare mugs — or you'd just prefer a different storage solution — I've got some ideas. Let's start with the Nemesis Now 'Bosco' gothic fantasy dragon penpot, available here and numerous other places. Update on Jan. 22, 2013: I'm no longer finding this product.

If you like the Fornasetti style — and don't mind spending $179 for a pencil holder — head on over to Unica Home.

For something much more modestly priced, head over to Etsy and see the papered pencil cups from Monica Marks — a nice use of old tin cans! They're all one of a kind.

Jerry Moon of Jerry's Wood Works sells his pencil cups on Etsy, too. This one is made from English walnut.

And Andrew's Reclaimed is yet another Etsy seller with a nice pencil cup.

The Desktop Tidy Organizer is a combination pencil cup, paper clip holder, and mini magnet board. You could buy it from Animi Causa Boutique or Mocha.

But a pencil holder doesn't have to be a cup; it could also be a wooden hedgehog, from Down to the Wood. Update on Jan. 22, 2013: I'm no longer finding this on the Down to the Wood website.

Finally, if you're looking for the "bastard lovechild of your office pen holder and the Barbie Party Palace," here's your answer: the Princess Collection Pen Holder. Update on Sept. 8, 2013: I'm no longer finding this product.
