I needed to run a couple of errands today, so not much progress on organizing my workroom.
I did have a few minutes this afternoon so I decided to make a little box for all the little things that can collect on a desk, like erasers and paperclips. Just wanted to make a little something pretty to keep my desk tidy.
|Used a deckle edged cutter on the lids bottom edge for interest.|
I started with just a plain cardboard box that jewelry comes in.
My box measures 4" x 4 1/4" x 1 3/4".
Next I covered the box in this mercury glass paper I got after Christmas at Michaels for half price. I decided to use the rose gold colored paper.
Once I had the entire box covered with the paper I added the filigree piece with hot glue on the center top and the acrylic clear mini knob.
Here is the knob on the box with filigree piece and a couple of teardrop rhinestones, also glued on the top.
All ready to get to work collecting all the little stuff that can clutter a desk.
|punched Martha Stewart medallion glued on inside of lid.|
I glued 3 mm white string pearls around the bottom edge of the box. Then hot glued 8 mm pink pearls in each corner for feet to match the rose gold color.
Nice inexpensive container to pretty up my new computer desk.
