Display Your Writing Utensils in Style with this Super Cute, Personalized Pencil Cup {Review and Giveaway} **CLOSED**

Congratulations to the winner, Saving in Style!
16Powered by RANDOM.ORG

I am always on the lookout for ways to jazz up my plain, brown, boring desk at school. I especially love storage items that are cute and functional like this pencil cup from Crystal's Creations! Of course I love anything monogrammed, and I could definitely use something cuter than the ceramic school mug I was using to hold pencils on my desk. I love how Crystal took something so boring (a wire mesh pencil cup) and made it such a cute desk accessory! The quality is great as the base for it is a standard, sturdy pencil cup. The monogrammed sleeve, I guess you could call it, is of great quality with multiple layers of fabric, your choice of monogram (single or triple letter) on the front, and a cute corset-like ribbon-laced back. Crystal has a lot of fabric options to choose from and you can pick the thread color for the monogram. The ribbon for lacing will be picked to match the monogram. I chose this cute black and white dot print with a hot pink monogram. I love the way it turned out! The colors are just my style, and everything was so nicely made and packaged. A true boutique quality custom item!

I would definitely recommend these to anyone needing to add a little spice to their desk or home (would be a great little storage container in a bathroom!). It would also make an awesome gift-it is a custom item, is useful for anyone, and is pretty inexpensive. There you have it...an awesome little product! I know you'll enjoy thinking up your perfect fabric and color combination to best adorn your space, so go ahead and get shopping! See details below on where to buy these pencil cups, as well as other cute products such as cute crocheted pincusions, monogrammed coffee sleeves, and adorable handmade toys. You also have an opportunity to WIN a completely custom pencil cup of your own!
