Get Organized In Style With Typography!


Hello G45ers,

Lets get organized! Is there a place in your home or office that is just waiting to be clutter-free? Or perhaps you're just looking to add some more pizazz to your crafting space? Well today's Graphic 45 blog is loaded with some incredible ideas to help you get organized in style! We're going to share two gorgeous ideas for decorative storage boxes and containers that are sure to inspire you! Autumn is a great time to take on a fun new project at home! Today we're going to share a stunning Typography box by Denise Johnson that is just perfect for housing little keepsakes. It also makes a perfect handmade gift! Then Olga Struk will share her Typography desk organizers that would look amazing in any home or office! Lets begin with Denise's beautiful Typography box. Altered boxes are so much fun to create and they are a fabulous way to store your special items with style! Here is what Denise had to say about this gorgeous creation!

"Craft this handmade artsy altered book box then fill with wonderful papercrafting supplies, a perfect gift for that special artist in your life. The box is painted and collaged with bits and pieces of Typography (and other G45 collection scraps). The artful quotes featured within the Typography collection transform this otherwise ordinary storage box into a treasured crafters keepsake. The lucky recipient can create with the hand-selected art supplies contained within, and after, use the inspiring altered box as a handsome storage piece." -Denise

Love these storage solutions. The book boxes are brilliant. Are they Graphic 45 if not where are they from ? They are perfect for the Typography papers.


This is such a wonderful idea for the books! I am currently working on one to make a diorama but would love to make a set for my supplies! Is there a tutorial on how to alter the books? Wishing you a happy day!

Clever!!! May use a different collection to make some for my grandkids.

LOVE the books! They are totally awesome!! I am going to give this a try since I am a book lover and this way I can combine two of my favorite things! TFS!

Love the idea of using books for a storage organizer! Great projects today!

What FABulous desk organizers! This would also be a great gift for those hard to buy 'men' in your life!!! Just love it...

WOW!! I love these projects. I am going to need some more Typography paper. I have been holding out on using what I have because I was waiting for the perfect project and now I have found 3 all in one day! Thank you G45, Denise, Olga, and Rhea for a much needed burst of inspiration!

I have been unsuccessful in locating the Kraft book boxes! Any suggestions? Thanks!

I will be looking out for where to find these boxes! This project is awesome!

I am a firm believer a person cannot have too many Graphic 45 supplies or ways to organize them. Thanks for the awesome inspiration and the chance to win such a terrific prize package!

I hate that I have to complain about site content, but this is not the first time that all supplies required for a project have not been sourced or included. I have just spent a significant amount of time trying to find these 'book' blanks and have had no success. HELP!

Love the books also, but please help us find the book blanks.

Please bring these back in 2014...when it isn't week before Thanksgiving and month before Christmas!! Loved the book and books.

LOVE, LOVE the desk set!!

LOVE,LOVE these projects today. Denise's shabby chic art box and the mini books set by Olga are beyond words-LOVE them both. Are the mini books homemade?

What great storage ideas, useful and pretty!

I need to get to Hobby Lobby so I can get the book boxes and make these. Really like this project. Actually I like all your projects

Just LOVE Olga's book storage boxes!! TYFS them with us.

Oh but I wish I had such imagination as to think up some of these incredible projects. Well done!

Great gift ideas and storage too ! I think I found my storage for my G45 section of my craftroom !
