Welcome to the Club Scrap July Blog Hop featuring the Office Space kit. If you have arrived from the super creative Roni's Inkstains Blog then you are in the right place. If not, hop back to Karen's post at the Club Scrap Blog to see a complete list of all the talented bloggers.

Pinterest is always a constant source of inspiration for me, with so many wonderful home and office decor ideas. I found an adorable bookend set and knew it would work perfectly with this month's theme.

Scroll to the bottom for detailed instructions.

Up next on the hop is Anne Marie's Artfully Balanced Blog.

Box Gather List:

Book Board
2 - 3x5 7/8" divider wall pieces glued together to make double thickness
2 - 6x6" front and back walls
2 - 3 1/4x6" side walls
1 - 3x6" base

2 - 3 1/8x5 7/8" side panels Office Space White Print
1 - 5 7/8x6" back wall panels Office Space White Print
Misc. paper pieces - Office Space Jade, Coral, Manila, Retro Pattern, and Orange for paper succulents

Cork Boards
2 - 6x6" Front wall pieces glued together to make double thickness

Assembly Instructions: 

Cut one 12x12 cork board into four 6x6" pieces using a craft knife.

Sandwich two cork boards and two divider wall book board pieces together with Bookbinding Glue to make double thicknesses of each. Set aside to dry.

Draw a pencil line to mark position of the divider wall on the base. Add glue inside the marked areas and adhere.

Lay the base on its side and add glue to the edges of the book board.

Attach the front wall, and repeat for the back wall.

Finish the box by attaching the side book boards.

Glue the cork board onto the front of the box with Bookbinding Glue.

Cover the back and side walls with Office Space White Prints leaving an 1/16" reveal around each panel.

Stamp Office Space images from the Jumbo and Greetings UM sets onto shrink plastic to create thumbtacks embellishments. Fussy cut the images and shrink with heat tool.

Sand the tops of metal thumbtacks to prepare for gluing.

Allow the tacks to dry for up to 12 hours before use.

Punch and die cut papers to create paper succulents for the box.

Add rocks to the smaller box compartment and attach paper succulents with hot glue.

Admire your completed project :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!
