Back to School with Bo Bunny

We were asked to make some desk d├ęcor with the Back to School theme
My project is up on the Bo Bunny blog today
Back To School by Tracee Provis
 
 
What better way to brighten up your desk than a fun desk tidy to keep all your supplies close to hand.
The Pop Quiz collection is perfect for all things school related and I loved creating this project with it.
 
 
 
I started by painting this wooden cutlery holder from Ikea, I added some Washi tape around the bottom and some rulers from the Pincushion Collection along the top edges to cover up some of the plain wood. Using the Library sheet from the Pop Quiz Collection I created a perpetual calendar that hangs on the front of the tidy. I added tabs to the month stickers from the Zip A Dee Doodle collection to make them interchangeable and the ones you aren't using can be stored in the drawer underneath, along with all of your smaller supplies.
 
 
 
I used all 4 sides of the holder to hold my supplies, on the back I created a cork board for notes. I took the pencil chipboard sticker from the 12 x 12 pack and added a magnetic strip to hold the paper/tickets/notes. As it's cork you could also add some push pins as well.
 
 
 
 
For the drawer I used another of the 12 x 12 chipboard pieces on the front and as well as looking awesome it acts as a strengthener for the drawer front. I covered the rest of the drawer with the Graduation sheet using the houndstooth patterned side.
As a final touch I fussy cut some of the sweet monsters from the Our Lil Monster collection and they just peek out from here and there putting a smile on my face every time I see them.
