Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge

Thanks for stopping by to see what I created for the PTI Blog Hop Challenge. The challenge is to create using office supplies. I created this little desk set using Basic Grey "Green at Heart" papers along with PTI stamps (Take Note set), ribbons, vintage buttons, and some office supplies which I picked up on clearance at Staples last year. The sticky note "clipboard" was made by covering a chipboard coaster with Bitty Dot paper from PTI. I stamped the "note to self" sentiment, punched it out and adhered to a punched scallop also done in the dotted paper. I attached that to a binder clip that had a large circle tab. I covered a mini composition book with BG paper, stamped "this and that" and punched it out with a vintage border stamp from Stampin Up. The polka dot paper clip has a snip of PTI dotted ribbon tied through it. I added PTI vintage buttons to jazz up these fun shaped tacks. I put all the little, altered office goodies in a PTI clear top tin. I covered the sides of the tin with Japanese masking tape (I have to thank Michelle W. for introducing me to this fun tape, I love it!). You can see strips of the pink, printed tape on the mini journal as well. I put some super strong magnets in the tin so it can hang from a magnetic board. I added a flower, button, and ribbon to the top of the clear lid. I made a few of these sets for graduation gifts this year. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the projects tonight. I can't wait to check them all out. Happy blog hopping!
