Desktop Card Organizer & Notepad Holder by Stephanie Purvis

Desktop Card Organizer & Notepad Holder! – Stephanie Purvis

As crafters we all probably make a ton of cards. But when it comes to sending out those cards, sometimes we don’t get them out as often as we would like. We have to find the card, an envelope, stamps, address label, and even a pen. Sometimes that simple task takes a lot of effort and causes us to miss sending out a card! Here is a desktop organizer that can hold several types of cards, the envelopes to match them, and a drawer underneath that can contain a pen, stamps and even a few return address labels. This makes it so much more convenient to get those cards out! Everything you need is all in one place – right on top of your desk. This would also make a wonderful gift! Also in this project tutorial is a notepad holder to keep track of birthdays, events, or other notes!  Subscribe to the month of September at Craft Project Central for full step-by-step instructions!
