Make Your Own Bamboo Paintbrush Holder

You can buy a bamboo paintbrush holder for about six bucks, or make one for a dollar, IF you have to buy a bamboo placemat like I did (found it at a local variety store, in the "bargain" aisle). If you already have one, it won't cost you a thing. Bamboo trumps any other material because it allows the brushes to breathe and become dry, thus keeping them from getting moldy (can you tell I live in a damp climate?).
Just google "Bamboo Paintbrush Holder" and you can see pictures of what these look like. Very easy to copy, and then you can save enough for a new brush to put IN your new bamboo holder.
