TCC's Stationery Caddy

Hello and Welcome!

I'm excited to share my design team project for The Cutting Cafe with you today. Regina is the owner/designer behind TTC and she has designed a brilliant Stationery Caddy. This was a snap to put together and I loved decorating it with G45's Secret Garden paper collection. 

It's such a handy item to have in your craft/office space and personally I think it would make a great Christmas/birthday gift. For the crafters on your gift list you could fill it with crafting items (like I did below) or use it in your office to store easy to reach items. 

I stocked this caddy with gel pens, Sharpie pens, twine, washi tape and A2 size card bases in white and ivory.

Here's how my caddy looked before I filled it.

I used shabby shutters and gathered twigs distress ink to distress the boxes and base. Then I chose neutral papers to cover the short and tall back panels and fussy cut images to add on my caddy. I added one blue Petaloo bloom and called it finished.

The Stationery Caddy file includes:

The set comes with 2 different options of making the caddy.
Option 1 with 2 boxes in the front (like sample)
Option 2 with 3 smaller boxes in the front.
The back box also comes with an optional smaller inner box for holding pens and pencils or other like items.
The set comes also with 3 assorted backs in both tall and short sizes.
The file comes in the following formats: PDF, SVG, MTC and WPC.

Note: If you do NOT own an electronic cutting machine use the PDF file to print and cut with scissors. This file is easy to assemble so I encourage you to give it a try! 

Be sure to visit TCC's blog on Sunday, September 21st, to see more inspiration using this file and two other cutting files. 

Thanks for the visit today!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. :)
