This is a wall dec/desk organizer I made for my daughter about two years ago and I realized (as it still sits in my craft room because we never got around to hanging it)  that I never posted it here. 
 I made it just before I started blogging so of course I didn't document how it was made so I will describe as best I can. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.  The back is a flat art canvas that was painted hot pink and the orange strip is a metallic something or other that I bought at a garage sale.  I covered it with scrapbook paper.
I used sb paper to decorate inexpensive metal, clear topped tins and glued extra strong magnets on the back.
The tops of the tins are decorated with scalloped circles made with Spellbinders dies and the letters (obviously spelling her name) were made using my cricut. They can be filled with paper clips, hair clips or whatever office supplies she might need.  I left the center open so she could see what was inside.
I added a little pen and post it holder so she could write me a thank you note  for making this for her he he. 
And to personalize it a bit more a pic of her sweet little face.  She will be going off to college in a year and a half so maybe we will just save it for her dorm room! And if you are wondering about the bright colors, she chose to decorate her room in hot pink, bright orange and lime green.  I don't go in there often as it gives me a headache but she loves it.
