DVD TIN DESKTOP NOTEBOOK

Hello all!! Today I am sharing an altered DVD tin that I made for a craft fair awhile back! I did use retired DSP since it is perfect for craft fair projects, but it would be easy peasy to make this in a class using current paper if you so desired. I measured the outside of my tin (7x5 approx), cut my dsp to fit, rounded the corners, and adhered it using sticky tape. Then, I just decorated the front of the tin to make it pretty! Here is a pic of the inside of the tin! On the left side are two pockets I created using DSP and my tab punch - this could be used for storing receipts, grocery lists, etc. The right side has a pad of paper with a pen that matches the DSP and is held in there with some ribbon I attached underneath the piece of card stock. The pad is held in the tin with sticky tape. This is a fun and relatively easy project to do and is a huge hit as a class! I will leave you the recipe - have a great day
DVD tin recipe:
Paper - Cameo Coral, Naturals Ivory car stock, DSP is retired
Inks - Cameo Coral, Rose Red classic Inks
Stamps -Stitched Exotics (sentiment from retired set)
Accessories - 5 Petal Punch, Jumbo Eyelet, Crop-a-dile, Tab Punch
