DIY Stationery Set

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 !
