I don’t think it’s any secret that we love cuteness around here. There’s some­thing about rosy cheeks and big bright eyes that just tick­les our fancy every time. If you like simple and cute crafts then you’re in luck! This paper plate craft desk tidy is just for you. Per­fect for girlie girls of all ages, it’s sweet, easy to make, and fun to hang beside your child’s bed or homework desk to hold those all important ‘things’.
