Destined for the Desk


Before throwing away those boxes used to package food, personal care items or stuff you received in the mail, can I encourage you to get a little crafty with them? All this week, I've been giving boxes a little face lift. Yes, I like to play plastic surgeon once in a while. A little nip. A little tuck. Using scissors & a trusty glue gun. Wanna play?

I'm sure you have blah boxes like these in your pantry.

Give them a little nip.
A little tuck.

Glue them together.
Dress them up in a fashionable print.


TADA! A dainty desk organizer!
Use it for invitations & greeting cards.


You can use it to group together bills & receipts, too.

See you tomorrow!
