Stationery Desk Organiser

Yay to everything having it’s place. I’ve seen quite a few people making desk organisers recently and it inspired me to give it a go.

I gathered all the things I reach for frequently and started measuring. A lot of measuring! It took all afternoon to create a mock version and then this final version in Pretty Peacock – my new favourite colour.

Although it took a while it was very relaxing and then rewarding when all the pieces came together like a puzzle.

It holds, paper snips scissors, 2 pens/pencils, a Take Your Pick tool, Tombow Mono liquid glue, Nuvo Crystal Glaze, several sheets of dimensionals, a tape runner and post it notes.

I’ve included all the measurements I used for this set below, as well the product list.

It took 3 12″x12″ sheets and 3 A4 sheets of cardstock to create the set.
