Hi Authentique Fans!!! Are you anticipating that first day of school? I thought it would be a wonderful idea to welcome your teacher with a fun Studious Desk Organizer. It is really super easy to create. All you need is a 5″ x 7″ photo frame, some chipboard, adhesive and random embellishments to decorate with. The note book that fits is placed inside the organizer box is 4 1/2″ wide x 7 1/2″ long. The inside pages are made from copy paper and are just a tad smaller then the book cover. Tie page inserts inside decorated book cover with ribbon. They are easy to replace as teacher needs new inserts.
To begin your Studious Desk Organizer cut one piece of chipboard to measure 2″ tall and 7 3/4″ long, one piece of chipboard to measure 1 1/2″ tall x 7 3/4″ long and two sides that measure 2″ square along with an unfinished 5″ x 7″ wood frame.
Paint frame with black paint.
Adhere Studious Authentique patter paper to the outside of prepared frame.
Add Studious pattern paper, Epherema Card, doily and a fussy cut image to inside of frame. Create organizer box with chipboard. *HINT: I used scored pattern paper or washi tape to hold on the parts together, making sure that everything is square and secure to the sides and back.
Add the sentiment from the top of the paper to top of frame along with metal claw legs to box.
Adhere a decorated doily to back of frame along with a fussy cut bird, bow and a small metal globe.
Add fussy cut airplane to top of frame with pop dots.
Adhere fussy cut Epherema card to front of prepared organizer box along with a scallop border.
Add a metal arrow and flowers to organizer box.
Create a small 4 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ note book to fit inside of organizer box. Decorate with matted Epherema Cards, small school type metals, and twine.
Create pages from copy paper. Add to inside of book with ribbon.
I hope you are inspired to create a few easy school organizer for your favorite teacher or maybe use a different Authentique collection to create a few gifts as we are coming up on the holidays. Pam
