PTI July Blog Hop

Welcome to PTI's July Blog Hop!


"For this month's Blog Hop we are focusing on office supplies! We want to see you incorporate all of
those fun desk drawer fillers into your paper crafting projects. This can include paper clips, binder clips,
rubber bands, file folders, staples, binder rings, adhesive labels, post-it notes, index cards or whatever
else you can dream up. Reinvent these basic office staples to be hip and trendy additions to your
projects! We look forward to seeing your creations!"

So I went a little overboard and I have three projects to share!  Here is the first....



For this card I used the new Library Stamp.  I made my own little envelope to attach to the card front with the library card!  The closures are made out of 3/4" circle punches and 3/16" eyelets!  I added a felt scalloped border and some yummy dark chocolate bakers twine!  (The sentiment doesn't look to hot as my ink was a little watery but it worked!)

I also colored the paper clip with a Copic marker to give it that tint to match the eyelets!


The next project is a clip board!  I added some polka dots and paper lines from the It's Official set! 
Stapled on some ribbon for a pen holder...easy peasy!


I love the Outline Alphabet!  I think it looks fun in white on Kraft!


Last one....a pin cushion!  I know maybe its not an actual "office supply" but my "office" is my craft table right?  So I have to have a pin cushion!  :)

I took a nugget tin and punched out the window.  Then I sewed felt squares together for the top!


I topped it off with a Dark Chocolate button! 


Hope you like my projects!  I can't wait to hop around and see more "Office supplies"!
