Getting organised


Before my mojo ran away and left me like the coward he is I made this little organiser for the upcoming table top sale at my son's school. I have been meaning to do it for some time. While on one of my online jaunts I saw something similar from overseas and thought hmm, where can I get a little box like that from. After some months I completely forgot about it, until recently at the supermarket I was reaching for some envelopes, I had the last in the box. I had a flashback to the organiser I saw and thought that empty box would be perfect for a fixer upper and covered it in lovely paper and cardstock etc, voila!


Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow xx
Stampin Up - Stamps: totally tabs, card stock: whisper white, taken with teal, old olive and kraft. Ink: versamark & old olive, ribbon: tempting turquoise grosgrain. Designer series paper: polka dot & paisleys. Misc: white embossing powder and box from supermarket.

I just love this. I sure need one of these, next time I'm in the store I'll be looking at the boxes differently. Thanks for sharing
