Halloween Note Desk Organizer

Today I wanted to share the little gift I gave to the hostesses this week so far.

I did not come up with the idea, only followed Jill Hilliard’s great directions. I will try and either do a photo or video tutorial on it for you guys soon!

Here it is:

You may not be able to see them, but the little box has custom notes in it. I created in “My Digital Studio”, printed and then cut down to 3 inch squares.

Everything “DSP” and “stamped” on this item was created in “My Digital Studio”, printed and cut to size. I did NOT make a whole page with DS, but only added boxes a little larger than I would need so I would not waste too much ink Smile. The digital downloads are: “Spooky Bingo Bits”, found here. And the “DSP” is “Frightful Sights”, found here.

The adorable tissues came from Walgreens. Jill had chocolates in the pocket, but I thought that would be gone to quickly and then the pocket would be empty. At least with the tissues, you’ll have some when needed and it looks cute longer.

For those that can’t for the tutorial, here is the quick supplies list and how to:

Box:
5.25 square of CS, scored at 1" on all sides.  Snip score lines to make the box.

Pocket:
2 Scallop Envelope die cuts.  Trim the bottom flap on each to be 1/2 inch. Assemble to make pocket, cut off one scallop flap. This way you will see more of the DSP on the back wall.

Wall:
Cut matching card stock to 9 x 3-1/8.  Score this piece at 3, 6-1/2, 7-1/2, and 8-1/2. Accordion fold the smaller pieces and attach to the box.

Assemble and decorate…
