I have to admit the main reason I bought this Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) was for the cute pink gingham, but after I opened the pack a couple of weeks ago, I found myself using some of the other papers first for a workshop. At least I still have my gingham!
This is made with only one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock and then just a couple of small pieces of DSP for decorating. I chose Old Olive because I love the Sweet Sugarplum and I need to re-order more.
Below are the measurements for the box. I don't have the template drawn up as this was a late night production after working on my super secret swap cards for our Team Meeting on Monday!
However, you can see all the details and LeeAnn's video here. This is so fast and simple, you're going to LOVE it! (p.s. I've ordered a stand to hold my cell phone, so I really hope to start making some videos soon...)
Box: card stock cut at 7" x 4 3/4"
Easel: card stock cut at 10 1/2" x 3 3/4"
DSP: 3 1/2" x 2 1/4 and 3 3/4" x 3 1/2
You will also want your corner rounder, bone folder and preferably Tombo Liquid Glue. It is my go to adhesive for pretty much everything.
Post-it notes will work great in here, but...
Since I didn't have any at the house, I looked around to see what else will fit. Since the easel has a nice wide base to it, look what it will hold!
All of my Watercolor Pencils! Yay!
It would also be a great holder for your business cards. Keep them on your desk so they are always near by for mailing to your customers or to slip inside a little notecard.
See how nice they look there! I purchased my calendars from Vippies.com. I honestly thought I'd missed out as they sold out quickly last year, but I received an email that they had a sale while supplies last. They arrived in a couple of weeks. Very fast service. I ordered the Medium size (2 3/8" x 1 3/4")
You could even use it for some light tools, the ones that always get lost on your desk.
Ok, that may be going a bit far, but hey, look there, it works!
Thank you again for looking in and a BIG Thank You to LeeAnn Greff for the great idea and perfect tutorial.
