Farmhouse - General Store Stationery Keeper

My second project using the new collection -Farmhouse by Graphic 45 is this "General Store" Stationery Keeper. I had an idea to make just a box but "just a box" is well, just a box. I wanted to make the "box" more purposeful so I added a chimney to store pencils in, magnetic strips along the rook to hold notes and a drawer underneath to hold papers etc. Inside, when you open the hinged lid, you'll find a calendar which is fixed to a magnetic board so you can replace the calendar year after year. I made a caddy for the upper part of the inside to keep little stationery bits that often get lost. You can then lift the caddy out and there is more space below.
