ihp Design Team Challenge!

It's time for this month's i {heart} papers design team challenge.  With the close of 2011 in sight and a brand new year on the horizon, we're spotlighting some cute calendar stickers provided by SRM Press.

I recently started teaching coloring classes, and for the past several months I've been stashing receipts wherever they happen to land.  The need to be more organized inspired this project, which will also provide safe-keeping for seasonal class ideas, marker color choices, etc.  Isn't it more fun when the ho-hum everyday things can become more colorful and sparkly?!

I will be adding an envelope to the ring for each month of the year and hanging the ring in a prominent spot so that it is easily accessible, probably on the handle of one of my Copic crates!  I'll be able to see at a glance when my classes are scheduled and how long I have before the prep-work needs to be finalized.  Receipts for supplies will go straight into the appropriate envelope instead of getting lost amongst the rest of the paper scraps in my studio!

The closure that I used is a ready-made twist closure that I purchased from Michael's...it barely lasted long enough to take this photo, so from now on I'll be using some circle dies, eyelets or brads, and cute twine to make my own!
