Baby Organizer for Whimsical Wednesdays

baby girl desk of Isn’t it cute? I used a PTI template, From the Desk of. I have made a few tweaks to the pattern to accommodate the punching and to refine the fit of the insert. The first time I made it, it was a bit too big. I also had to redesign the angle on the sides so there wasn’t an odd bit of paper from the punching. I am going to add a set of card to this and hope to sell them on Etsy or at the craft show I am going to Feb 7th.

I added the bookmark just to add the verse to the organizer but it can also be hung on a wall or doorknob which is why I didn’t cut the ribbon. The magnet I used was just from one of those rolls. I usually use it to keep Nesties in CD cases. Simple and cheaper than those magnetic dots you can buy from Basic Grey and I’m sure other places. The clothespin idea was from Mishie of Mish Mash. She has done them a few times in different ways. If nothing else, it is a cute accent but it can be useful too.
