Little Gifts Part 4: Desk Set

Each December I like to have a collection of little gifts on hand.  They are perfect for service providers, host(ess) gifts, colleagues or stocking stuffers.  This week I’ll share the ones I’ve done this year, which I also offered in a class to my customers.

This desk set pattern is by Tina Wardell, who very generously has 4 different designs that utilise mini calendars with PDF instructions and a video tutorial on her blog. 
I decided to use the Mosaic Mood Designer series paper for my desk set, and chose the Terracotta Tile and Soft Suede cardstocks from there.  It’s actually an easy project to put together, and would work well even if you don’t have the mini calendar to put on the pocket.

This particular sentiment comes from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set, but there are many that would work.
