Altered Desk Set

Hello and Welcome!

With Christmas fast approaching, I wanted to get ahead with some gift sets. This desk set includes a Jr. Legal Pad, Bookclip, Binderclip, and Matching Pen.

I used burgundy card stock for the base of the pad cover and layered patterned paper. I added the ribbon before I adhered the paper. I used the scallop punches for the bookclip and a jumbo paper clip. I adhered the patterned paper to the binder clip and used the RSVP pen so I could add matching paper to the barrel.

I hope to make several of these sets as gifts. They are fairly simple and make a nice gift for friends and coworkers. I think my sister-in-law has her eye on this one!

Hope you are all having a good week and not getting too busy to enjoy the season!

Blessings to you,
Vicki
