I am sooooooo bad .... I completely forgot to show my design team make for Eclectic Ellapu this week !!!!!  

The theme was 'Make something for a teacher'    This was great for me as my partner is a teacher ..... and no she is NOT girly at all .... plus there are MANY male teachers out there and other female teachers who are not into girly colours or flowers .... So I made my project with my wonderful partner in mind ....

It is made from 1 of the stackable boxes you can get in most craft stores and I glued the box and the lid (turned upside down) to a piece of chipboard .... decorated it using Kanban 'Industriana' paper range (which I LOVE )   .... next thing to do was cover an empty soup can for pencil and pen storage (using the same paper range throughout )    

I then covered a small notebook and rolled some paper (matching the note book cover) around the pen refil and inserted it back into the pen tube ...  I also made a little cover for some post it notes and decorated it with an owl .... (all teachers are wise just like an owl ..... or so I was lead to believe when I was at school)    I used my Stampin' Up punch 'Owl Builder' and decorated the outside of the post it note pad.   I then repunched out the owl using scraps of designer papers and glued this owl onto an over sized paper clip to be used as a book marker ...

I am really pleased with how it has come out and my partner is really happy with it and will have it on her desk when school starts again in September.


Thank you so so much for stopping by
