Or, perhaps you just want a little something extra for your desk.
Either way, this is a cute and inexpensive project to make.
It started life as a styrofoam block from the dollar store.
I then added tan velvet paper to the top (to give it a sandy feel) and covered each side with paper from Imaginisce.
It does require a bit of patience and a strong liquid glue, but it will, eventually, stay stuck.
I then attached photo frames, cut from the same paper, from Dies Direct http://www.diesdirect.com on each side. I filled two with photos, but left the fourth for journaling.
I then added some stamped images that coordinate with the paper, colored with Copic markers, to the front.
For the top, I cut out the beach chair, umbrella and sea shells with dies from Dies Direct and used Memo Pins from Tim Holtz to attach them.
Another Memo Pin holds a final photo.
This one is simple, but imagine what you could do with lace and flowers and ribbon, oh my!
Just have fun!
