Midweek Make Over 3 - Candy Cane Lane Desk Tidy

Wed 2 Nov 2016

Wendesday already! I hope your week's going well so far. I'm dosing myself up on Night Nurse and Strepsils at the moment, trying to fend off the flu-y thing that is hanging round. Yes, it's definitely autumn!

This week's project is a remake of a class I designed and ran about six years ago - I can't believe it's taken me so long to get back to it, as I really loved making this. The original blog post is lost in the mists of time on my old blog, but you can see pics of the original project here.

How much fun is this?! The original project had a set of greetings cards in it, but I've turned it into cute little storage box for pens and stamping blocks using the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! I was feeling a bit Christmassy when I made this, but of course you could swap out the little gingerbread house, or use different DSP and it would be an all-year-rounder.

The little tray at the front would work for storing sticky notes, or paperclips. How about having one of these by your phone, so you're never without a notepad and pen when you need one?

And here's a close-up of the pocket at the back. Perfect for pens and rulers, or how about popping envelopes in here? It'll fit a standard C6 size, and will hold a good number.

The little house is simply cut out of one of the sheets you get in the pack of Candy Cane Lane DSP. My fussy-cutting isn't up to much, but these cute little houses are worth it, and you get loads of them!

As always, you can get hold of everything you need from my Online Shop, and I've popped links below so you don't have to hunt around. If you'd like the instructions to the original project, just drop me an email and I'd be happy to send them on to you. I haven't updated them for this version, but it's only the decoration that's is different.

Hope you like today's project! Thanks for dropping by. I'm off to make a start on my swaps for this weekend's On Stage event in Telford. I'm a bit behind, so wish me luck! See you soon... xx
