Boho Indigo DSP Series - Stationery Set

Stampin' Up! Boho Indigo

I've adored stationery for as long as I can remember. 

Notebooks are my weakness - they can be pretty or practical. I love them all! 

I like to be organised and I'm a planner, I use note books for many purposes - to write down my ideas and make lists, to name a few....

Today I am sharing a fun stationery project I've created with the patterned paper from Boho Indigo Product Medley. 

Boho Indigo Series - Handmade by Kim

I've created the pieces inside using bits and bobs I had stashed in my craft room. I often buy things that I know I'll use in future papercraft projects - especially if they are a bargain. I've got a draw full of sticky notes, uncovered note pads and tins of all shapes and sizes.  

The tin I've used in today's project measures - 220 (L) x 160 (w) x 25 (h) mm and is from a company called Tinware that are based in the UK.

I have made projects using this sized tin before but this time I decided to design it with it in a landscape position. The idea is that you can choose to keep the tin open in an upright position when using the stationery. 

Using my ruler and my corner punch, I've measured cardstock and paper to fit the lid, the inside of the lid and the base. I've used Very Vanilla and Misty Moonlight cardstock and the Boho Indigo patterned paper

All of the patterned paper you can see on all of the pieces within this project has been embossed with the Subtle embossing folder for a lovely linen look.

As you can see, I have added a calendar to the inside of the lid . This is held in place by a magnet so it can be changed easily every year.

I have also added in an area to store pens, using just a bit of ribbon adhered to cardstock to keep the pens in place. 

In my draw of bits and bobs, I also store hoard all of the Stampin' Up! pens I have collected from various events over the last 7 years. Imagine my delight when I discovered that I had three pens in navy blue to match this project! The other two pens can be seen in my previous project!

Held within the tin are some sticky notes, a paperclip pot (tin) and a notebook. 

I made sure I used different (but complimentary patterns on every piece.

For my sticky note holder, I've used magnets to keep the cover in place. 

I've decorated the inside too!

The paperclip tin fits within the larger tin. I've decorated the lid and added a Misty Moonlight bow.

I located my retired Stampin' Up! paperclips to put inside. Do you remember any of these?

For various reasons, I haven't decorated the outside of the notebook. One being that any 3D decoration on the front will just get damaged really easily.

When you open it you will see I have created a pocket to hold some tags.

I wanted to add some sticky notes but I  also wanted to hide them as they were just so bright in comparison to the colours in my project. So I added a flap to hold the tags and cover the sticky notes.

Again, these sticky notes are another stash - they were 50p each from Morrison's many years ago (maybe five or six years ago?) Every time I go to Morrison's, I always check the stationery section for them but they are no more. I have about 4 left so I'm good for now but I'll still be checking!

As you can see from following my Boho Indigo DSP Series, you can do SO much with the beautiful Stampin' Up! patterned paper and create something unique! 

I think this stationery set would make a lovely handmade gift.
