Hi crafters...sharing a cute and functional project I made using Crealies dies: a DIY personalized Stationery Set.
My daughter and I often go to craft stores together and craft shopping is one way we really bond! When she saw this pattern paper with cute succulents at our local craft store ,she begged me to buy it.I was skeptical at first as I really couldn't think of how I would use cacti in my creations!!!
She wanted me to make something with it for her...and I made a stationery set.
The set has a Post it note-holder, a Mini bag, an eraser, Jumbo paper clips and a Matching pen.
The post it note holder is in the shape of a school bag. I love how Annelies [ the owner of Crealies
] designs her dies with gorgeous useful add-ons like the tiny pockets you can see in the front and the strap and buckle! The buckle slides so smoothly over the strap!
I made a layered flower using Crealies dies and can you see the dangling "P"...it is my daughter's Monogram and I made it using Crealies Alfies dies , foam and pattern paper.
The school bag is held closed with magnets and opens to reveal a 3 x 3 inch post it note....I love how the Crealies Cardzz dies are so perfect to make large utility projects.
There is space to add a small pen or pencil inside if you wish.
On the other side I added a flap[ under which you can hide something secret!!] and personalized it with my daughter's name. I also diecut several tiny numbers and added it to the base to match with the theme!
This is a tiny school bag and turned out soo cute!
This was made with the Crealies Xtra set and it too has tiny dies to add the cute pockets with the buttons and a separate strap and buckle die too.
I constructed this using several layers of foam and card stock so it is sturdy yet light weight. It too has a magnetic closure ,
The mini school bag can hold a big eraser which is again monogrammed "P" using the Crealies Alfies. Love the size of these alphabet dies as they are tall but thin and perfect to fit in tiny spaces.
This is the back side of the bag
I used Crealies Uno Camera and Onesie dies to create these cute paper clips.
These are very sturdy as I added foam and cardstock beneath the pattern paper and the paper clip is hot glued between layers of foam so that it doesn't come out easily.
I personalised the back side with "P".
The little camera turned out sooo cute!I have shared a similar Camera clip in this post too: Interactive Camera
And lastly here is a matching pen which was super easy to make by wrapping and sticking the pattern paper around a pen.
I used glitter foam around the pen cap and fuzzy cut an image from the paper and added it to the pen cap
Added the alphabet " P" onto the foam pen cap to complete the set!
I hope you liked these ideas...my daughter loves this set . It was easy to make and will make a lovely handmade gift set !
