Plastic Utensils

At our house we have a ton of plastic utensils for our kids.  They make me crazy.  This is what our silverware drawer looked like:

I decided to try to make utensil holders to hang on the door of the cabinet where I keep the kid dishes.  I started with Jell-O Pudding boxes.

I cut off the flaps, cut the front of the box shorter than the back, and made an angled cut on each side.  
I cut a hole in the back and covered the box in red Duck Brand duct tape (I bought the duct tape at Michael's with a 40% off coupon, so this project cost me less than $1 total).
 I made labels with my handy-dandy label maker and hung them on the cabinet door with 3M Command Hooks.
 Here is the finished product.
