Sprucing up a Paper Stack

001

I got this promotional paper stack a couple of weeks ago. Ugh.

 

004

I mean, who would put that on their desks? I know I wouldn’t, but I love having note paper handy for all those lists I constantly write so I decided to spruce it up a little.

I tossed the cover and dismounted the paper holder so it lay flat. Then I used permanent spray adhesive (outside!) to cover the front, where the image is.

I then placed the glued surface against the back of the paper I wanted to cover it with (a bit of wood grain gift wrap) and used a craft knife to cut along the sides of the cardboard using it as my template.

 

014

When everything was cut out I reassembled the holder with double stick tape on the side and regular tape inside and outside at the bottom and popped the paper back in.

And now it sits in one of the cube shelves by my craft desk and I always have a piece of paper on hand to jot down ideas or for writing yet another list.
