Office Companions Made Entirely Out of Paper

I fell in love with Patricia Zapata Office Companions set and just had to buy it. This set is so versatile and can be sized to fit any office or craft room. Click here to order the complete SVG and DXF set from A Little Hut. There are two videos to help you with the assembly, so be sure to visit her YouTube channel to see them.

I covered a bulletin board with card stock so I would have a perfect place to show off my new hanging files. I used the Out of Print collection from BasicGrey for all my designs. Did I mention that I love BasicGrey paper?

I used a large punch for the lattice strip and the stickers were part of the collection. I love this hanging file and plan to make a few larger ones for my craft room. They remind me of the new Martha Stewart hanging files. You can hang them on your walls with Scotch Removable Clear Mounting Squares.

This hanging file has room for a picture, a paper pad and pencil. Each file has holes in them so you can hang them on a bulletin board, but I am going to remove the holes and put magnets on the back of this one so I can hang it on my refrigerator. I so need to add a photo!

I also made the tacks that are shown in this photo. I cut small circles with my Cameo and then glued them to the top of flat tacks. I love the way they blend into the design.

I sized this file so I could use it to store my business cards. I made it a little larger than my standard cards so I could also use it for some of the oversized business cards that I made. The fun thing about these files is that you can size them to fit your needs.

Lastly, this wonderful kit comes with a desk note holder that was so fun to put together. Whew…this was a long post. Hope you are still with me!

Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for a fun Fab Five Friday! Next Wednesday, I will be back with a two part video series on (it is a surprise) so stay tuned to find out more! All will be revealed on Monday!

This looks wonderful Linda - thank you so much for sharing and for your kind words!

I love seeing how other people use my files. Isn't it amazing how paper choices can change the look of a project so dramatically? It's such a great way to personalize projects.

These are fantastic projects! I have an E2, so these specific projects are not in my future. However, I collect, (or steal), aluminum cans, cereal boxes, etc. from our recycling. Then I alter and revamp them for organizational purposes around the home. Pretty papers can even dress up the "garbage"! (I clean all of it very well, before I use it-scout's honor!)
