I've been wanting to show y'all the Desk Organizer I designed for my technique class. The top pic is the front of the organizer....it uses SU's awesome black CS, cork sheets and 2 coasters. One coaster is covered in cork making it a great place to tack up notes. The other side is a coaster also covered in black CS, the monthly technique is adheared topping it off with a coordinating stamped image. On the bottom is the claendar for the month. Each month the class learns a new technique that coordinates with an image and the monthly calendar. The cool thing about this Desk Organizer is that it is 8.5" wide...big enough to have the cork board, post it notes, a pen and sticky flags. It sits up on little wooden knobs painted black. In the bottom pic you can see the back of the organizer. It has a tray underneath that holds the months that have passed by. Then when a new year comes along, you simply glue the current calendar over last year's and continue yr after yr. By the time we finish at the end of the year, not only will the class have a organizer with a calendar for a whole yr, but a book of all the techniques we learned over the year because each month we learn a new technique while making the new claendar, we will also be making a 6 x 6" page for a technique book we will bind at the end of the year. If anyone is interested in getting instructions, please let me know. I will be putting a tutorial (for the organbizer only, not any techniques) together to sell very soon.
If you are interested in amy of the materials I used for this project, please email me, I'd love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
