It's Hip to be Square - 3 Pocket Caddy

I'm glad you could stop by for today's JustRite - It's Hip to be Square Blog Hop! The JustRite Design Team is showcasing creations made using the new November Releases.













I created this cute 3 Pocket Caddy altering this template a bit. Instead of having a circle handle, I opted to print the directions on copy paper, then following the measurements, scored and cut my card stock, keeping my middle section square. The base of my Caddy is made from Grey card stock, again I printed the pattern on copy paper, and used the measurements to create my box. To angle the side panels, I used the Tag Corner Punch. I added a layer of Black card stock, and some Night & Day Specialty Papers from Stampin' Up! to embellish my Caddy.



I created some 3" x 3" cards using the JustRite 2" Square Wood Stamper, 2" Square Decorative Frames, and the new Just a Note Borders & Centers. I placed the Border and Center onto the 2" Wood Stamper then stamped in Black on White Card stock. I punched the sentiment using a 1" Square, layering onto a 1-1/4" Black panel, then onto the stamped Border, a Black panel then to my base card. I added some Kaiser Gems to embellish the border.


I created a Bind It All Note Pad Holder to place in the center of the Caddy, and a Bind It All Post it Note Holder and Pen to place in the back compartment of the Caddy. To embellish both the Note Pad and Post It Note Holders, I added monograms as my centers using the Times New Roman Uppercase Font in 95pt and 50pt, then placed my Decorative Frame Border onto the 2" Wood Stamper, stamping in Black on White card stock. This time I trimmed closely to the frame, mounting on a Black, then White panel, then onto my Bind It All Projects.
