Back to School at CHA

Here's my contribution to Winter CHA 2010. Though I didn't get to go to CHA, I was asked to make Back to School projects and my projects went to CHA without me with Maggie from Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot.

I made this 'desk box' using instructions I bought online from Inking Idaho, adding layers of Cuttlebug embossed Core'dinations paper to the various surfaces. The terrific designer paper is by Adorn It. The top has a couple of school child silhouettes from A Child's Year Cricut cartridge.

I used a nice grosgrain ribbon on my box and the front stays closed with magnets (under the buttons).
Inside my box is designer paper wrapped glue stick, eraser, and pencil. I made a post-it note cover with an inside pocket and magnetic closure. There are a couple of small note cards and bookmarks. The inside of the box cover has a pocket holding a pad of paper.

Another project I made was taking a small notebook and making a larger cover with built in handles. I added dividers with pockets and covered surfaces with more Adorn It and embossed Core'dinations.

Here are a couple pics of the inside. The words School Zone above was cut with Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge, while the other 'icons' below were from A Child's Year.

Thanks for stopping in today!
