The Precious Parcel Desk Set was the sixth project at our Stampin’ Sisters Retreat. When the Sale-a-Bration Catalog came out and I saw the Precious Parcel Card Kit I knew I wanted to try something other than cards. I saw a pencil box someone had made so I started with that first. Once that was done I thought why not make a whole desk set. Here’s what I came up with:
Isn’t this adorable!!! I am really happy with how it turned out.
The boxes put our stampers over the top just a bit but they were very pleased with the end result.
First is the Pencil Box — we folded up the Precious Parcel card and sealed it shut, trim around the post card and tucked both pieces inside the mail slot. The “stamps” were added with Dimensionals and finally a Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon bow was added with a Glue Dot.
Next we made a drawer box for paper clips or any other desk accessories.
We added a Metallic Brad for the drawer pull.
Don’t you love the Post It Note Holder — so cute. This one was a bit tricky, I had to re-cut and score the card but I love how it turned out.
We ended with a tissue box cover that matches all the other pieces.
The Precious Parcel card is the front of the cover. For the sides, we ran Pear Pizzazz card stock through the
Lace Embossing Folder and then sponged over it with Mossy Meadow ink.
Lastly we added Pearls to the center of each flower.
There was no stamping on this project, just lots of assembling but it was definitely worth the time.
I only have two projects left to share with you and some other goodies too.
