I made this paper weight for my boss at the bank. We have a running joke going because he does have a paper weight on his desk but whenever I put something on his desk I move the paper weight onto my pile and say "this is the important to do pile". He keeps saying he is going to get me my own paper weight but I made my own instead and I used his initals.
I purchased the paperweight from an online store called Photo Weights. They offer a large variety of shapes and sizes. This particular paperweight is called the Round Paperweight and it measures 2.50 inches.
I used my Large JustRite Monogram Stamper with the circle border ring and the Special Occassion font from the accessory kit. Then I used the Nestabilities circle dies to cut out the monogram and the black mat. I used a larger size die to cut the blue circle. The paperweight came with a cardboard backing that fits snuggly within the recessed area on the underside of the paperweight. It also came with a black felt backing that is sticky on the inside which holds the monogram with in the recessed area in place and provides a soft backing to prevent the paperweight from scratching the desk.
Although I did make this for my boss it would make a great personalized Father's Day gift. I'll be back tomorrow with another monogram Father's Day gift....I know...what a surprise...it's monogrammed! LOL.....I am so predictable these days.
See ya on the blog!
