Creative Charms Paper Organizer and Giveaway!


Hi everyone!! I have two quick projects for you today! Who loves quick and cute?

Today I'm featuring fabulous embellishments from the April Kit of the Month. I'm using the organza jeweled butterfly, flowers, and pink pearl brads and bling! This is only a teeny touch of your jam-packed kit this month!
The first project I want to share with you is a fabulously thrify and speedy paper organizer. I receive lots of packages thru the mail. I love mail...but I don't love to waste. So I took a priority flat rate box that came to me in the mail, and cut it on a diagonal. I then painted the box pink (I learned how to do this from my friend Esmeralda who can organize anything!)

Then I took a piece of 12x12 paper, and cut it on a diagonal, adhered it to the box, and proceeded to decorate this fabulous and free paper organizer with my gorgeous organza jeweled flowers from Creative Charms April kit, and then topped it off with just one of the gorgeous yellow jeweled organza butterflies in this month's kit! How long did it take me? A total of 10 minutes plus drying time. Voila. Easy, thrifty, and cute!
My accompanying project is a card to say thank you to my sweet friend Esmeralda who shared her box tip with me! This card took me 10 minutes start to finish to complete, due to the fabulous pink pearl brads and bling that arrived in my April Kit, and  a quick pink bow from grosgrain ribbon!
Thank you sooo much for joining me today at Creative Charms.
So remember not to discard those mailing boxes--save them and creative a charming project using your favorite goodies from Creative Charms!
