Recently the Pink Paislee design team were challenged to create an item for our desk using the collection. I like to keep my desk fairly uncluttered with only my lamp and tool caddy on my desk so I have maximum space for creating. But I do have a magnetic notice board hanging on the wall above my desk and thought it could do with a little makeover!
I had a little wander through our office supply store and purchased this magnetic metal basket that I thought would be perfect for holding a few smaller items that I want to keep close to hand! Of course, it had to be gold so I grabbed my gold spray paint and transformed it!
While this was drying, I grabbed a few supplies and some simple white circle magnets and embellished each one with some embellishments from the collection.
My Sticky Thumb hot glue gun made the process super quick! I used a variety of punched circles, puffy stickers and cork hearts to embellish my magnets and they turned out super fun!
And here's a look at my finished project! My newly transformed magnetic gold basket was perfect for holding some of the new sticky notes and small notebooks from the C'est La Vie and Paislee Paperie collections. I'm thrilled to have them so close to hand now!
At the moment my magnets are holding some special bits and pieces from my recent trip to the USA! Here's another photo of the corner of my desk.
It's amazing how such a small project and change to my creative space has made such a HUGE difference to my creativity! I love it and I hope I've given you a couple of ideas today!
