Chalk board desk organiser easel card

Hello,

At todays workshop we created a chalk board desk organiser easel card.

I have attached instructions on what you need to make this and instructions on how to make this project.



This is a picture of a few of the finished projects at today's workshop.




You will need:


1 X A4 WHITE CARD 
1 X A4 PATTERNED CARD 
1 X A4 PEARL CARD GOLD 
1 X LARGE BROWN DIE CUT
1 X SMALL BROWN DIE CUT
1 X DIE CUT CHALK BOARD
1 X 2015 CALENDAR
1 X STRIP WHITE GEMS
1 X STRIP BLACK GEMS

Ideally try to use heavy weight card stock as you will be using this item for the year so it does need to be sturdy.

INSTRUCTIONS

Score and fold your white card in half, and fold the front half in half again to make an easel card.

Matt and layer the base of the easel card with pearl gold card and patterned card.  Matt and layer the front of the easel card with pearl gold card and patterned card. 

Save the off cuts of card to make the paper box and pen holder.

The chalk board has a sticky back, remove this and stick to the large brown die cut, remove double sided tape of back of calendar and stick to the small brown die cut.  Stick the chalk board to the left side of your easel card on the front and stick the calendar on the bottom right of the base of the easel card.

If you do not have a chalk board, you can laminate a piece of card and make it into a white board and used this instead.

To make the paper holder, cut your spare patterned paper into 10cm x 11cm piece and score at 1 ½ cm on all four sides and make into a box, ensure corners are stuck firm.  Trim a piece of remaining gold pearl to fit inside the box to line it.   8 ¼ x 9 ¼ cm will fit.  Stick this to the base of your easel card in front of your chalk board, this will act as a stopper also.

For the pen holder, using the remaining patterned paper, trim to 7cm x 9cm and score at 1cm on 2 long sides and across the bottom, and again at 2cm on same three sides (ensuring you leave the top unscored).  Cut into the corners and this will create a dimensional box you need the extra score so you can stick the flaps to the back of the easel.  This is where you put your pens, pencils, chalk in to – so it does need the 1cm dimension to fit these in.  Add gems to decorate. 

You do need to use heavy weight card for this project so it stays sturdy – wet glue is advisable for this project as it gives a much greater sticking power.    


Using plain copier paper you can trim this to 8 x 9 cm and put inside paper box for note paper.   

Hope you have enjoyed this project.
