The Wall Mount Graphic 45 Style!!

Hello everyone, it's Barbara again!

Today I want to share my alteration of the Clip It Up Wall Mount.

First of all, I want to say how easy it was to assemble. I had it hung in a matter of minutes! I think it took longer to find my tools! Anyway, when it came to altering the Wall Mount, the first thing I thought of was adding a shelf to the top of it. Well, it ended up being a two tier shelf for my deep edge punches. To start this project I went to Lowe's and purchased a 7.8" D x 23.8" W white shelf made by Rubbermaid. The next step was to cut the shelf in half lengthwise. Then I put one of the halves on top of the Wall Mount. I then marked how much I needed to cut off. Then you cut that part off. I did the same to the other board. Use the pieces you cut off to put between the two lengths and then glue or screw. Whichever you prefer.

You now have a two tiered shelf. I used Graphic 45's Le Cirque collection and covered my shelf. I used Mod Podge to seal it. I also added some lace and trims. I really love it, and now I have created even more storage for my goodies! I can't wait to make another one for my other Clip It Up Wall Mount!

Here it is without the punches:

Last I have a layout to share with you using the same collection.


Hope you have a wonderfully inspired day!!



  1. What a fabulous idea Barbara!! Never would have thought of that! And it makes the perfect storage for your punches. I love the rosette/flower on your layout. Beautiful work!

  2. Fantastic shelf unit you created...and love that layout: it's beautiful.

  3. I really love the layout and all the detail work you put into it! I also love the shelf you made! You did such a fabulous job on both!
    I hadn't thought of putting a shelf on the wall mount. I'm sure you put the screws in a stud or added a wall anchor for the extra weight. Really, really great idea!!! Thanks Barbara!!!
