Simply Marbleous Desk Set - Great Teacher Gifts

 Hi Everyone,

A friend called and asked me to make her some little gifts for her son's teachers, so I thought I would make some desk sets with a notepad, post it pad and a pen. Great for teacher gifts or for colleagues at work or just to keep on your craft desk and very easy to make, let me show you how.


1 piece of bumblebee card stock 9 1/2" x 3 3/4", 1 piece 5 3/4" x 3"
1 piece of dsp 3 5/8" x 1 7/8", 1 piece 3 1/4" x 6", 1 piece 3" x 6"
Scrap of basic white
Multipurpose adhesive
Memento black ink
Flowing Flowers stamp set
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Paper snips
Tear and Tape


On the long side of the larger piece score at 1/2", 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 6", fold and burnish the score lines in a concertina way for the stand at one end.

For the smaller piece of card to make the pocket, score at 1/2" and 1" on 3 sides, then with the none scored side at the top, trim away the two end squares on right and left and then the bottom one of the two remaining small squares at either end to make the tab. Fold and burnish the score lines.

For the stand, add tear and tape to the bottom of the back piece and fix to the concertina panel so it will stand up, see picture above.

Fold in the side and bottom pieces on the pocket and secure the bottom tabs in place, then adhere to the front so it is level with the bottom fold, see picture.

Add dsp the front pocket piece. Stamp a sentiment to the scrap of basic white and adhere to the pocket.

Lay the notebook face down on the wrong side of the dsp with about 1/8" of dsp showing below it and then fold the dsp over the top of the notebook and pinch the creases and then adhere to the back of the notebook.

Repeat this with the post it pad.

Add both to the inside of the pocket and add a little pen or pencil and you have a pretty, useful desk accessory. Why don't you give it a try?
