Back to School Memo Block

Can you believe it is already time to go back to school!!!! Today inspiration is a Back to School Memo Block. I am always looking for my memo pads and I thought the Artist on the Block would make a great functional container for them and easy for me to spot on my desk. 
I took two of the scoreboards and glued them together but first cut one of the sides into a triangular shape making sure to leave a bit of the flap so you will be able to glue to the other side piece. I used a smaller Artist on the Block to create my pen box and adhered it to the side once I had it and the side decorated with paper. 
I found these little chalkboard at out local craft store and thought it would be perfect for my Back to School Memo Box. 
I love to fussy cut and Graphic 45 ABC Primer is a perfect selection of paper for my project. So my tags, books and little girls are all from the paper. I added random metals pieces and twine to my project along with some apple legs to complete the Back to School Memo Box.
So I hope you think out of the box on how to use the Scoreboard Die from Eileen Hull/Sizzix to make some wonderful functional projects for your home or office.   Don't forget to stop by The Artists on the Block Blog to see other inspiring projects. Also be sure and stop by the Art with Heart Challenge for more Inspiration and to participate in the challenge!  So link up one of your creations for a chance to win a Sizzix prize pack! Hugs Pammejo
