I saw this desktop organizer for sale on Etsy, and my first thought was, I could make that (although props to the seller for coming up with such a clever idea). It appears to be several boxes of various sizes covered in decorative paper, all nestled together in an old box lid, also covered in pretty paper.
I like how she has put craft supplies in it, instead of the traditional office supplies. This could also be a great landing station for your front entry way. Read more about the importance of landing strips here.
I always love a good excuse to shop for beautiful decorative paper. Time to get crafty!
