The project I am sharing with you today is a supply box to hold school supplies: ruler, pens, pencils, tape runner, scissors, post-its, stapler, etc.  The Bella Boutique School Days range is so colorful and fun to create all kinds of school projects!
I found a box at Michael's, but it was pink!  So I painted to entire box with red acrylic paint, then covered all exterior and interior sides with the wonderful papers in this range.  I used some of the Bella cardboard die cuts and word strips to make it fun and colorful as a desk top supply box.  I covered the bottom with felt to avoid scratches on furniture.  The red & black clothespins can be removed for a student to post other items.
Here's a side view to show the separate parts of the box.  My project received an enthusiastic approval from my grandson, Austin., who is in middle school.  You can't ask for a better accolade than that!  Please enjoy the wonderful work of our design team as you hop along, and leave comments for your chance to win the awesome prize!
Your next hop along the trail is Pamela Young's blog.
