Who says organized has to be boring? I used the beautiful and whimsical Enchanted Garden collection to add some 'pretty' to a desktop organizer. I began with a bare/simple cardboard magazine/file holder and covered it with some of my favorite Enchanted Garden papers (Periodical). I trimmed the edges with some lace trim from the Natural Earth Lace package.
I then created a tray for it all to sit in using some cardboard boxes I had in my stash. I lined the tray with some Island Mist Double Dot paper. I also made another tiered tray and covered this with the 'Spellbound' paper. I added some stamping with the Distressted Textures and 'It is Written' stamp sets.
I wanted to stick with the 'nature' elements you see in the Enchanted Garden papers, to embellish this project, so on the spine of the magazine holder I fussy cut one of the frame designs from the 'Pixies' paper and then made a little nest design with some Spanish moss and added an egg I made from some air dry clay.
For the pencil cup I chose to use the striped paper from the coordination 6x6 paper pack so that I would get a thinner strip design on the cup. I added a little Dusty Attic chipboard frame and I continued with the nature theme and made another small egg/nest design with some more Spanish moss and some little eggs that I made from air dry clay.
This was such a fun project to make and I think it would make a wonderful teacher's gift....or you might, like me, decide it looks just perfect on your own desk :)
