Cuttlebug Organiser

I saw a picture of desk tidy/craft storage that I thought would be so useful for my Cuttlebug accessories and sent the link to a friend.  Her dear husband set too and made us each one; what a clever chap!!!

I have been spending time painting and decorating it over the last week and yesterday I actually finished it.  I painted it with a cream/buff coloured acrylic paint and then used some Echo Park co-ordinating papers.  I thought the distressed look would help disguise any grubby fingerprints when I am using it!!! 

This is the back - just love this advert paper





And I have used this paper on the sides too




 I have used the reverse side of the advert paper on the backs of the top compartments and for the lower drawer.



The drawers, made two layers of really strong cardboard, were the hardest as they needed covering with sticky book covering so that they slid easily and were held together nicely.  I have never managed the art of book covering without a bubble or crease, let alone these little boxes!!!  I just used some of the patterned papers on the front of the drawers.

I am so pleased with this and it will be very useful.  I have displayed a few things in it so that you can visualise the dimensions.
