A Ketto Caddy


Welcome to the first Ketto Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

Instead of a card, I decided to make a cubby caddy. I found the pattern when I was in Myrtle Beach shopping at my favorite LSS, Artful Legacy. I get lots of good ideas from them! Want to know how to make one? Check out the directions they gave me...they're at the bottom of this post.

Here's a side view of delightful Kenya Ketto:


And a view of the top so you can see the four cubbbies:



Here's another side. I plan to store pens and pencils and an assortment of memo pads in my cubbies so I used this Stamping Bella sentiment and Kenya's Sparkle to decorate one side.




Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Lady Guinevere's Inky Faeries blog. Have a great day!

Stamps: Kenya Ketto, Kenya's Sparkle, Wasabi's Flower, "Write" Now, Sentiment; all by Stamping Bella
Ink: Adirondack Pitch black, SU Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, River Rock
Papers: SU Ruby red, dp
Accessories: SU ribbon, copics, nestabilities, Stamping Bella dots, eyelets, Stamping Bella bling

Hope



Materials Needed:

One 12 x 12 Cardstock
Two 12 x 12 Patterned Papers (1 each coordinating colors)
8 eyelets
ribbon
eyelet setter


Directions:

1. Score cardstock at 4" and 8"
2. Turn cardstock and score at 4" and 8 "
3. Crease all folds; Create a diagonal fold in each corner square
4. Patterned Paper #1: Cut eight 3 3/4" squares and one 3 7/8" square
5. Patterned Paper #2: Cut eight 3 7/8" squares
6. Cut each 3 3/4" square in half diagonally.
7. Glue each triangle shape to the outer corners on both sides of cardstock.
8. Glue the single 3 7/8 square piece of the inside center square.
9. Glue patterned paper #2 to the remaining cardstock squared.
10. Punch a hole in the tip of each triangle (2 holes per corner) and then set an eyelet in each hole.
11. Thread the ribbon through the holes, assemble the caddy, and finish with a bow.
