OK, I want you to file this idea away for the next time you need a teacher appreciation gift or secretaries day gift. I love altering ordinary things. It’s more fun to sit at your desk and pay bills (or do homework) is your desk is cute, its everyday art! A couple of weeks ago I showed you how to make a cute desk caddy organizer using supplies from Papermart and today we are going to fill it!
You will need Jumbo paperclips, thumbtacks, paper scraps (use the ones left over from the desk caddy project!), hot glue gun, buttons, clear flat backed marbles, ribbon and a container to put it all in! We will use the divided wooden box we decorated in the desk caddy tutorial. Watch this video to see how it’s done!
Let’s take a look at the finished goodies:
The next time you are in the office supply store have a look at the supplies with an artist’s eye. You can color paper fasteners to make designer brads, binders and page protectors can become scrapbooks OR storage binders for stamps and dies. Cute clips can decorate your cards or scrapbook pages and don’t forget the storage aisle! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
