I needed a easy way to store some of my bits of paper an notes, and this is how I came up woth this idea, its a simple way to tidy up your desk which you can customise to your personal style!! It doesnt take long, and is very fun to make! So have a go!! X
Get you cereal box and cut out a swurve on either side to create the shape you want your holder to be. Then cover it with a wrapping paper, or fabric of your choice. Please note, you might have to extend your box so that it fits A4, so check before you start to put the paper on. Also if you find you can see the pattern of the cereal box underneath the paper, you can cover it in plane paper first.
The next thing you need to do is to label your folder. However if you do not want to put a label in your folder then feel free to skip this next step. If you do want a folder then this is an easy step for you. All you have to do is cut outa rectangle with a smaller rectangle cut out of the middle. Then glue it to the front of your folder, only glueing down three sides. This is so you can slip a piece of paper in with the label on it, into the rectangle so the word is visible through the cut out smaller rectangle.
This is the final and best step to complete this project and make it your own! All you have to do is to decorate and add to your holder. I used different types of fabric to make bunting, and cut out a felt border. Then I madea felt flower and stuck in to the front (pictured in step 2). However it is up to you what you put on it!
and dont forgett if you liked the project, to add it as a favourite! Thank you :)
