A Weekend Project {Notebook Magazine}

Just incase you’re at a loose end this weekend I thought I’d share this little make that I styled  for The current issue of Notebook magazine. You can’t beat a  weekend project especially when it so easy and makes storage beautiful…

1. Measure the face panel of the magazine files. 2. Cut out panels for each file using a sharp craft knife and metal ruler. 3. Using spray adhesive or craft glue to attach wallpaper panels to the fronts of the wooden magazine files {I used Ikea’s Knuff magazine files}

And seeing as it’s been a while since I showed you some dodgy sketches…

Client, Notebook Magazine, Photography, Craig Wall, Styling, Marie Nichols {Me!}

Sadly no such fun project for me this weekend. My apartment, which started the week looking beautiful {probably because we started the week elsewhere} now looks like studio “mid-shoot”, and is brimming with props for next weeks shoots and props I’m still to return from this week…oh the joys of being a stylist , this weekend I’ll be mostly trying to tidy up!

Happy Friday my lovelies x
