Now this has been a REAL project!!!!!!!!!!!

The other day an online friend of mine at my Silhouette Plus group, brought attention to this really cool organizer that comes in a set from SVG Attic and right now she has the set on sale for $1.75 (normally $6.99).  Here is a link to her site if you are interested in her files and below is a photo of the set. 

I just love that organizer, so I purchased the set!!!  She also has a video showing how to put it together and trust me, you WILL need to watch it!!!

At any rate, I spend the past few days making one for my desktop and I used my color scheme which is black and white.  Here are some photos of the one I made.

This is an over-all view of it as it sits on my desktop.

Here is a close-up of it with some of my "stuff" in it.

Here is an "over-head" view of it.

Here is a close-up of the side.

And last but not least is a view of the back....I covered it with a different patterned paper...just made it look better since that is the view of it when you enter my Craft Room.

Just a few notes and comments regarding the one I made.  I used cereal box for the back, bottom, two sides. and the dividers and because it is thicker in some ways it made it more difficult to put together.  All of my patterned papers and part of the black are Recollections from Michaels and the rest of the black is Bazzill.  Just be aware that as Barbara at Silhouette Plus pointed out, this is a rather daunting project but I have to say I really like the finished project and it was worth me pulling out my hair at times...LOL

Thanks for stopping by and hurry back!!!

This looks great Pam & what a wonderfully large craft-space you have to work from too. (Not to mention tidy & organised, LOL!)

I'm glad you made it first because you're the real pro and I will follow you by using cereal boxes,too! Thank you for that tip! It turned out just beautifully, Pam, and I think your choice of papers is so elegant! It's gorgeous!
