Mini Magazine holder with folders !

Hi friends,
Today, I have a mini magazine holder to share. There are lot of different versions of these magazine holders/ card holders all over the internet and, I have followed a tutorial from one such source from HERE. Here's a look at the way I have embellished my magazine holder once the base was made :

 This is the magazine holder :

I created a few folders with pockets so that I could store all my small dies in it. The base of the  folders are recycled from cereal boxes to give it a sturdy base. 

To make these folders, I cut apart a cereal box and used the central panel of the box to make my folder by scoring it in the middle and folding it like a card base. Check the picture below :

I have decorated the magazine holder with DCWV Fresh Florals pattern paper stack, assorted Washi tapes and my handmade flowers using dies.

Supplies used :
Pattern papersDCWV Fresh Florals pattern paper stack, K &Company papers.
Dies : Cheery Lynn French Pastry doliy die, Cheery Lynn Olive branches die, Cheery Lynn Embellishment #3 die, Spellbinders Rose Creations die, Spellbinders Floral Flourishes die, Memory Box/ Simon Says Hexagons die.
Punches : Punch Bunch 3 in 1 Hydrangea punch, Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly punch.
Kaisercraft Butterflies stamp set.
Inks : Distress inks - Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Vintage Photo, Peacock Feathers, Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.
Washi tapes, Modelling paste, Retro flower punch, Lindy's Stamp Gang Curiouser Chartreuse Flat Fabio mist.

Challenges entered :
Cheery Lynn - All about texture
Imaginations- Embossing ( I have used modelling paste on my first  folder and have done dry embossing on my flowers)
City Crafter Challenges- Butterflies ( I have added them on my file holders )
Craft Room - Something old, something new ( I have used my new SSS Hexagons die and the Cheery Lynn doily die, old is pattern papers which I've been hoarding and also my Washi tapes which are atleast 2 years old. ) ( Made it to Top 3 )
We Do Dobadoo - Something feminine ( I created this holder for my crafty desk ).

Hope you all like my project. Do leave me your comments. Would love to hear from you.
Have a nice day everyone.
