Just Add Ink Challenge #5 - Office Tidy

Hello friends,
Today's post is for the JAI #5 Challenge, adding Dimension to you project. This project has been sitting on my desk unfinished so it was a good challenge to inspire me to finish if off. I designed it with an easel top, added a calendar as the stopper and divided the draw into four sections.

Edited to add the link for the Desktop Calendar Box Tutorial by Tammy Maxwell found here. I found that I had to change the Box Wrapper scoring line 10 3/4" to 10 1/2" to make the box square (it is the last measurement for that piece of card.  I made the draw insert by measuring the area, adding the amount for the upright piece in the centre and scoring. You need to cut the top piece to the upright section on both sides where you want the sections and then cut the upright section on the other piece only, there being two pieces of card one on top of the other.  If you went to Stampin' Up' regionals they showed how to do it for the little tag box.  Hope these directions makes sense.

Stamps: Click a Bella
Card and Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White, Dashing DP (R)
Ink: Stazon Black, Basic Grey, Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Real Red and Certainly Celery Markers, Gelly Roll Pen
Embellishments: Brads, Clips, Flower Brads, Real Red and White Grossgrain Ribbon
Tools: Cuttlebug, Provo Craft Harmony Alphabet, Classic Square Scalloped Rectangle Nestability, Computer and Printer for calendar, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Dimensionals, Aqua Painter, Fiskars Cutter and Scoring Tool, Glue
Hope you like it.
