Peaceful Poppies Desktop Caddy/ Craft Organizer

How cute is this little organizer?! This caddy comes together remarkably quick and would make a great project for a paper crafting class or to give as a gift. I love the bright colors of the Poppies, although I had to try one using the Mosaic Mood DSP (scroll down)—I just love that Calypso Coral color. This caddy is the perfect size to hold your most used Stampin’ Up tools.

Now for the project recipe:

Larger main box:

~ Cut card stock @ 8-1/4” x 6-1/2”. On the short side, score at 1” x 5-1/2”. On the long side, score at 4-1/4” x 5-1/4”. Burnish those score lines for a nice, crisp edge. Cut the little squares into tabs. Don’t forget to give a little angle to those tabs for easy, clean folding.

~ Cut your Designer Series Paper for the inside of the box at 4-3/8” x 4”. Cut two more pieces at 3” x 3/4”. These will be glued to the outside of your box. Now is a good time to adhere the larger piece of DSP to the inside top portion of your box.

~ Place Tear & Tape Adhesive (this gives a strong hold), to the inside of the tab and lower fold. Fold up, adhering the tab first, then the outside piece to form your pocket.

Multi-purpose Glue Pocket:

~ Cut card stock at 6” x 31/5. Score short side at 1” x 2-1/4” and long side at 3” x 4”.

~ Cut DSP (for the front) at 1” x 1-3/4” and two pieces at 1-3/4” x 3/4” (for the sides).

~ Follow same instructions as the large box for completing this section.

Glue Dots/ General Purpose Pocket:

~ Cut DSP at 6” x 5”. Score short side at 1” and 4” and long side at 3” x 4”.

~ Cut DSP at 2-3/4” x 1-3/4” (for the front) and two pieces at 1-3/4” x 3/4” (for the sides).

~ Follow same steps at large box for completing this section.

Now to put together:

All three of the completed boxes

~ Using Tear & Tape, adhere the two smaller boxes together at the center and then adhere to the larger box. Again, that Tear & Tape has great holding power! Glue your DSP to the front of the boxes and then the sides. I wrapped a ribbon around the boxes and added a sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! If you don’t have the Simply Scored tool, you may want to consider purchasing it. I always get such nice, crisp scoring lines.
