Who doesn't want a pretty desk?  If we have to spend time there to work, pay bills, or even do some crafting, we all want a work space that's functional and inviting.  Today I have a project to share that might help brighten up your workspace a bit.
I discovered this fun box by Graphic 45 in my craft stash and decided to cover it with gorgeous papers from the Hello collection. I wanted something for my desk to hold notepaper, paperclips and sticky notes.  This will be functional and pretty!
For the outside of the box, I used 12x12 paper and a scallop border sticker to decorate around the edge.  For the top, a 3x4 card, odds & ends, and a cute typewriter doodle-pop add color and dimension.
I continued the papers and scallop sticker inside the box.
Finally, I had lots of left over icon stickers from the collection so I added them to some lined note paper, punched holes, and tied up the sheets with ribbon for a fun little notepad that fits perfectly into the box. A colorful pen and some jelly clips finished up my project.  
I have links to supplies I used on my website at  Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer, but if you have to be inside at a desk, why not make it colorful and fun? Happy crafting!
