Desktop Organizer and Perpetual Calendar



The Circle Magazine is sponsoring a contest for projects using Cricut Craft Room! As much as I have loved Design Studio, I have found I love designing in CCR so much more. If you haven't given CCR a try, I hope you will. It's a free online design program from ProvoCraft and you can download it from cricut.com. Plus, there is also a free set of images for anyone to use and cut from in CCR titled Craft Room Basics. I designed all of this project using Craft Room Basics! That means, if you have a Cricut and a computer with internet access, you can re-create this project! {Because this is my entry into the Contest, I cannot share the file at this time.}

Anyone that knows me or has looked around on my blog, probably knew my project would involve boxes. The Desktop Organizer and Perpetual Calendar is actually made up of lots of boxes. The bottom box slides out and reveals two compartments for desk supplies.


The middle two cubes have the numbers needed to display every day of the month and those cubes sit on a little tray so they can easily slide out for date changes.



The month(s) are attached to the top box with velcro and the top box opens to reveal storage for the additional month tags as well as a little "pick me up" treat!


On the left side is a box for holding note paper.

And on the right is a two compartment box for holding pens and pencils.

And that's my Desktop Organizer and Perpetual Calendar! Thanks for stopping by!  :)

  15. Wow what a great project! I just started following your blog, can you tell me what material you used for this project? Is it just cardstock or is it chipboard? Thanks!

    1. I used a thicker cardstock and after the patterned paper was glued on, it became even more sturdy.
