Crayon Desk Organizer

Thursday was my daughter’s last day of Kindergarten (sniff, sniff) :>)! I made her teacher this gift using Lauren Meader’s “From the Desk Of” template available at Papertrey Ink.

Details: SU Real Red & Whisper White CS, ink - every color from the SU bold brights family, and SU Crayon Alphabet & Kids stamp sets. Wish I had better pictures to share, there was no sun to be found on the day I finished the set!

The desk organizer was inspired by Crayola paper products I found in Michael’s for $1!! Lauren’s challenge for this week is to make your own DP and use it with one of her templates. I made both the Crayon background paper and alphabet border, and also put a name plate on the unseen side of the organizer. Crayon Kids (retired from SU) is one of my most used stamp sets, I reach for it all the time for a variety occasions. I have made Easter, baby, & thank you cards, I could go on and on. If you have connections with SU, encourage them to bring it back!!

Be sure to check out all the templates available at Papertrey Ink. There is a variety and all are such fun – not your typical boxes. The templates are super easy to use and I like being able to print directly onto cardstock, which means no measuring.

I will have another template project soon, I am working on my SIL’s Birthday present :>).
Smiles, Julie
