How To: make your own desk bin!

What is the most annoying thing about craft? all those little bits of paper; the backs of dimentionals, the red carrier tape of sticky strip, little bits of off cuts… and they all float around your desk, making a mess, and getting in the way!

That is until now!

Make your own desk bin, from an old jar, but… please make it pretty!

How to make a desk bin

I used an old jar (think it was lemon curd if your that curious!). First, measure around your jar. use this measurement to measure a length of DSP, but add an inch to give an overlap. The best way I have found of attaching your DSP is with sticky strip – I didnt take the label off my jar, instead it make it easier to line up your DSP to ensure its straight around your bin. Then, add some ribbon (measured in the same way) also with sticky strip. I had to add some more bling! before it looked finished – the sentiment is a stamp from Remember This (one of the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! sets), stamped in Pool Party (to match the DSP), and then I’ve added hearts using the Sweetheart and Itty Bitty Accents punches, and some jewels I had laying around!

Its so damn cute, and a great addition to any craft desk
