STUDIOUS DESK ORGANIZER by Pam Bray
The note book that fits is placed inside the organizer box is 4 1/2" wide x 7 1/2" long. The inside pages are made from copy paper and are just a tad smaller then the book cover. Tie page inserts inside decorated book cover with ribbon. They are easy to replace as teacher needs new inserts.
To make myself feel better, I made this super cute tool caddy and a matching altered notebook. There is no law that says I cannot have fun school stuff on MY desk, right?! I adore the vintage images in the Authentique Studious Collection. This is an older collection, which can still be found on-line. I added a few bits of Authentique Accolade as well.
My little caddy can hold four sticky note pads, a bundle of pencils, a large bottle of glue, scissors, and pens! It's perfect for the teacher's desk, a student's desk, or even mom's desk at home!
How fun is this altered glue bottle?! I also created a few tags which can be used as gift tags, book marks, or hold reward coupons.
Simply covering standard sticky note pads makes them fun and interesting. And who doesn't love a freshly sharpened pencil?!
The notebook is a standard 8" x 5" notebook, but cover it with pretty paper and it becomes a something fun and personalized.
