Another back to school gift for me

Well I finally took some time to make a few more things for my desk at school. This time around I used Lauren Meader's My Timeless Templates "Filed with Flair". I plan on putting my assessment folder I made the other day in one pocket, note cards in another, and envelopes for sending notes home in the last.

I also covered a little jar in dots and ribbon to put all my binder clips in that I use regularly.

To create the dots I pulled out all of my scraps and used four different punch sizes. 1 3/4"; 1 3/8"; 1 1/4"; and 1/2".

Paper: SU Basic Black; PTI Lemon Tart; PTI Raspberry Fizz; PTI Plum Pudding; Blue (can't remember)
Accessories: 1 3/4"; 1 3/8"; 1 1/4"; 1/2" punches; Black Grosgrain Ribbon; PTI Plum Pudding Vintage Button
