Counter/Desk Organizer

Lately I have been trying to find ways to reuse the many food boxes our family goes through and I came across this Oranizer idea. I used an empty microwave popcorn box.

Covered it with a solid earth tone color paper.

Then I embellished the front with paper from The Angel Company, ribbon and used the Storybook Cricut cartridge to cut the paper design and the flower tabs used on the dividers.

The tabs say: Bills, Mail, Receipts, and Other. I love to have a place for everything and everything in its place, so I think this will come in handy on a kitchen counter or desk to help keep things organized. :)

Altered Mini 4 Subject Notebooks

I came across these neat sized Mini 4 Subject Notebooks yesterday and thought that they would be very fun to alter!

I chose the paper I wanted to use, cut it to size, and used my adhesive tape gun to apply it to the plastic cover.

To finish it off, I used my Storybook Cricut cartridge for the Top Note design, then I embossed the "enjoy" and the bird which is a stamp from The Angel Company Unexpected Joys stamp set, using white embossing powder. Another fun and simple altering idea!

Here is one I made up that can be used as a fun Christmas Planner/Organizer. I used my Cricut to cut the snowflakes and the word "joy" out of vinyl. I used the Gypsy Wanderings and A Child's Year cartridge for the snowflakes and the Sesame Street Font cartridge for the word "joy".
