Club Scrap Paradise Blog Hop

Welcome to another fun filled, inspiring Club Scrap blog hop!  This month we are focusing on the kit - Paradise.  Such a bright, beautiful kit that's got some really fun sentiments.   I decided that I wanted to make something that reminds me to relax and be unique all the time so I made a little something to set on my desk that will remind me to do so each day....

Bet you'll never guess what it is....

I created my own desk organizer!  

I thought the bright colors would cheer up any day and that sentiment...how could you not smile after reading that???   These are tubes we have at work that I cut with dh's miter saw.  It was so quick and easy and lots of fun!  I decided to emphasise the bright colors on the pattern papers to decorate the inside of the tubes so I painted them with Lagoon Blue mixed with Sparkle acrylic paints and I added Limeade along the rim.

Once the paint had dried I wrapped each tube with the various pattern papers included in the kit. I then cut off the pizza box top the kit comes in and arranged the tubes how I wanted them to be placed once finished, drew out the pattern and cut out the base.  Each tube was then hot glued into place.  I added the ribbon, flamingo sentiment and "relax" sentiment and finished gluing the tubes together (near the tops of each tub).  I finished it off by wrapping the base of the organizer with the blue ribbon included in the kit just to give it a pretty little finishing touch.

Final step....


Fill it up!!!

These tubes are large enough to accommodate lots of goodies and sturdy enough to stand up to lots of use and abuse.  


And with the great papers it looks pretty from all sides!

I had lots of scraps from making this project and other cards I made earlier this month so I decided to make a few more cards to use those scraps up....


the "swish" down the center is actually a leftover piece from wrapping up the tubes above.  Made a great focal point in the background.


Strips cut off of the photo mats that I used for cards...
with a bit of stamping makes for a fun card huh?


This is another left over bit from wrapping up the tubes.  I cut out the "pretty part", paired it with some stamped images/sentiment and a few buttons all from the kit.
