My Mini Desk Caddy Project

 I Got a little bored one day and I decided to make a project.  I decided to do a little recycling and some stash busting and create a mini desk caddy to organize things while I am doing a project.  I also decided to show you all how I did it.  I had these Crystal light boxes and the leftover papers and stickers from a class I took at a Creating Keepsakes Convention by Farm House, and thought that this would work great.
 I first glued the boxes together and then used Washi to cover the edges.
 I cut the papers so that all of the corners would be covered.  I measured and then added extra for tabs to wrap around the boxes.  This added more structure and support to the boxes.

 I also made a chipboard base to put on the bottom of the box.

 Then I decorate with the leftover stickers and chipboard die cuts that I had.  
 It turned out super cute, and as you can see, it holds a lot of big and heavy stuff!
 Very cool, huh?
 It just took me a little time, but was fun and easy.  I am going to use it during projects.  I tend to have a mess on my desk when I am actively working on a project, this will help contain the mess a little more!

Stay crafty, and organized, my friends!
