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
