If you’re at all familiar with my office then you know it was all inspired by a little notebook with gold dots, that turned into a wall of gold confetti, which turned into a dresser which turned into a room full of gold, corals and pinks.
I’m so excited to be sharing another office project today that was inspired by these boxes in my office. I love the color of these and I wanted to use that inspiration on my desk. When Amber from Damask Love asked my to #dressmydesk using some of my favorite items from The Container Store I was all in. Did you know that The Container Store just opened up about 20 minutes away from me? Did you know I just made my first trip THIS week? Did you know that i’m completely in love and now I just want to reorganize my entire HOME! I do. I really do. Oh the day dreaming I’ve been doing.
Having and orderly desk is definitely a priority when I want to get things done. So I took these stackable letter holders and made myself an open filing system. Now the thing about these boxes is that you can’t reach in for your papers unless it happens to be at the top. This actually works for me because I wanted to have all my desk papers which include things to do, expenses, invoices and deadlines insight. To make these delicious Pink Stacked Letter Holders you will need the following:
♥ Letter Holders from The Container Store
♥Pink Cardstock in different hues
♥White vinyl labels from cutting machine
[line]First use a piece of cardstock and pencil to trace a template around the front of the letter holder. Then cut the cardstock template out using scissors. After that use the template to cut out the right and left sides of the letter head inserts.[line]
[line]Next prepare some vinyl labels on your cutting machine to fit the front of one side of the letter holder about 2×6 inches long. Update: I cut these labels using my SILHOUETTE PORTRAIT which I highly recommend! The font I used is called Isabella [line]
[line]Before you glue the inserts down make sure you check for any extra trimming. Once you have a perfect fit, use the sponge brush to paint a thin layer of modge podge onto the paper. Gently press it onto the inside of the letter holders.[line]
I love all of the color it gives my desk!
[line][line][warning]WARNING: SUPER EASY PROJECT AHEAD!!!![/warning]
The second project I created were these foil pencil holders. I had some extra foil paper left over from another project so I decided to play with them a bit. All I did was cut to size the foil paper to match the inside of the acrylic pencil holder and slipped them right in. The best thing about this paper (Martha Stewart Transfer Paper) is that it clings to the sides of the paper so it pretty much stays in place without any adhesive! [line][line]
