A few weeks ago I showed you the beginning of the Desk Set with some pencils and pretty clips. To round out your set and make your work space look ultra pretty we're going to add: a small container for paperclips, a picture frame, a pencil holder, and a drink coaster.
This project is so simple but in the end looks super cute. Keep in mind that you don't have to use only one kind of paper. Use different patterns from the same series or collection to get a really swank look. My favourite paper to use right now is paper napkins. They're the easiest to use with the glue and they come in so many beautiful patterns.
Basically, we're just going to decoupage anything we can get our hands on! Yeah! I love decoupaging!
Here are the supplies I used:
1) Cut your paper to fit whatever item you'll be applying it to. Here, I traced the bottom of the small ceramic container and cut it out to fit inside.
2)Just apply your modge podge to the surface that you want to add the paper to:
|I think it's time for a new brush!|
Make sure to go just a little outside the edge of the paper to seal it in. The glue will dry clear so don't worry about making a mess.
Now, we just do the same with all of the other pieces!

A whole set like this would make an excellent Christmas gift for a co-worker or someone who's going back to school~
