Graphic 45 - Stationery Desk Holder + Tutorial

Hello dear friends!

Today I'm introduced on the official Graphic 45 blog and I cannot be any happier. Once in a month you will definitely see a project with a tutorial, featuring fantastic products and papers from the Graphic 45 brand.

What I want to share with you in the current post is a Desk Stationery Holder, created with the paper from the "Enchanted Forest" collection. It is very rich and bright and can 'beautify' any creation.









I have a tutorial on my channel for creating the stand, while the notebook is pretty plain and I hope you will be able to construct it on your own, getting the idea from the pictures which I am posting below:












I've used the following supplies from Graphic 45:
Black Cardstock
Artist Trading Tags Black

**Other Metal Embellishments from my stash

And here are the links to the tutorial:
