Authentique Mister Desk Organizer Button Farm Kit

Authentique Mister Desk Organizer Button Farm Kit for Dad

Hello, Friends!  I’m super excited about my May Kit Club over on the Button Farm Club.  With Father’s Day right around the corner, we took our crafting off the page and created an amazing Authentique Mister Desk Organizer for Dad!

These stacking drawers measure 16″ high (taller if you could the height of the easel topper).  Each chipboard drawer is neatly housed in the wooden frame.  Isn’t it handsome?

The The full color, step by step tutorial is loaded with clever techniques that you will be able to use in all your crafty adventures.  You will learn how to:

  • Build the drawer unit
  • Create a faux woodgrain finish
  • Use packaging to build an easel style photo display unit on the top of the drawer
  • Use product packaging to construct from scratch a 3.25” x 3.25” x 1 ½” hardcover mini album to tuck into one of the drawers

This cute album has a fun, retro vibe thanks to Authentique Paper’s kitschy “Ingredient” collection.  The paper collection even includes a dozen chic recipe cards. But it’s more than just a pretty face!  Tucked inside the sturdy covers of a Prima Magnetic Dossier Waterfall Album Base you’ll find a practical design that can help you organize dozens of your favorite recipes.  It’s filled to the brim with pockets and folios, hidden pockets and pull out inserts and a grand 12 page waterfall folio (4” x 6” pages /24 surfaces in all). Pretty enough to set out as décor in your kitchen, and practical enough to be used, this album is beauty and brains all wrapped up in one handsome 6” x 9” x 3” package.

Remember when we all got dressed in our Easter best for Easter Sunday? For me, the outfit was a complete ensemble with little gloves, a matching hat (with an annoying elastic string to keep it firmly on one’s head) white patent leather shoes and an itchy crinoline petticoat.  There is something about this project that takes me right back to those precious memories.

Authentique Quest Rolling Photo Box

Authentique Quest Rolling Photo Box for The January Button Farm Club Kit

Hello, Friends!  You all know how much I love to create projects with interactive elements.  Well, today’s project kinda takes the cake in that department.  This Authentique Quest Rolling Photo Box is my January Kit for The Button Farm Club, and it is cute, cute, cute!

Authentique Quest Rolling Photo Box by Kathy Clement for The Button Farm Club Photo 01

I mean, who would not love a little suitcase style box on wheels that really roll?

The box measures 5″ x 5″ .  I love the retro vibe of the Authentique Quest collection!  And this patterned paper is so chic!

The kit comes with everything you need to create the project with the exception of adhesives and cutting tools so you can “get rolling” right away.  You’ll also get a full color, detailed step by step printed tutorial in the kit to make it a cinch to complete.

Authentique Quest Rolling Photo Box: A Peek Inside

While the outside of this rolling photo box is adorable, the real fun awaits you on the inside.  Instead of designing a standard book style mini album, I’ve turned 6 heavy weight coasters into 6 unique interactive mini albums.

My goal was to create a whimsical, interactive project that would also work as home or office decor.  Oh, and fun.  I wanted it to be fun!

Authentique Quest Rolling Photo Box: YouTube Video Tour

This short YouTube video tour will demonstrate all the great interactive elements built into this kit.  I hope you enjoy!

The kit is an incredible value, in my opinion.  For just $36.99 you get the following:

  • 8 double sided 12″ x 12″ Authentique Quest papers
  • 1 Authentique Quest Cardstock Components Sheet
  • 4 Tim Holtz Pulley Wheels
  • 2 Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Brads
  • 1 Graphic 45 Black Mixed Media Box
  • 6 heavy cardstock coasters
  • Printed, full color instructions

If you’d like to order the kit, you can find it at The Button Farm Club.

If you’d rather not create this project, but you’d still like to have it in your hot little hands, then you can purchase the sample I created from my ETSY Shop.  There is just ONE available, first come, first served.

I hope you love this kit as much as I loved designing and creating it.  This was such a fun way for me to “roll in” the New Year!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
