DIY Lint Roller Holder...

If you have one (or more) of these...

...then you probably have a dozen (or more) of these!

A couple of months ago the incredibly talented Brenda from Cozy Little House came up with a GENIUS solution for storing these sticky little lint rollers (click the link above to see her post). She used a tin can with the label removed to house her lint roller! Now why didn't I think of that? Mine is always stuck in the bottom junk drawer, adhered to everything surrounding it!

I used Brenda's idea as a jumping off point to make my own Baby fur remover... I mean lint roller holder!  I used brown scrapbook paper to make this for one of my girls to keep at her new apartment.

 Then I picked out a couple of more scrapbook papers to make some for myself.

 I couldn't resist adding Baby's picture to the green striped one. It picks up the green in her eyes!

Although Baby was originally a little miffed at the insinuation that it is mostly her fur around the house and on everyone's clothing (which it is), she has had a change of heart and enjoys seeing her pretty face on the new lint roller holder that sits out on the counter. 

Easy instructions follow if you'd like to make one of your own! I know a LOT of you are pet lovers out there and this is a stylish way to always have a lint roller handy and unstuck!!

Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day, everyone!

(And Happy Birthday to my beautiful mom, who would have been 86 today. I love you, Mom!)
