Inspirational Desk Decor

Paper pads with coordinating pieces make for fun craft projects. I like the paper pads from Paper House® because they include bright, modern colors with mix and match designs. They make projects like this Inspirational Desk Décor easy!

Within the Paper House Color Washed 12” Paper pad, find a coordinating paper and cut it to approximately 4” X 6.”    

Use the Paper Trimmer to straighten up the edges of the 4” X 6” as needed.

Place the final piece into the frame. If the card stock is not thick enough to stay in place within the frame, use the Craft Dots to secure the card stock to the back of the frame.

 Tip: If you do not have a frame in a color that you like, purchase an inexpensive frame and spray paint to re-color the frame.
