Day 12 Post-It-Holder Oct 28
Well today is the last day of our 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. We hope that you enjoyed our projects that we created for you. Today we are showcasing Post-It Note Holders. For this project I created two different size post-it note holders.
The first one is for the standard post-it note. On this project I am using Mark's Finest Papers Ginger Cookies stamp set. I am also using Mark's Finest Papers Holiday Greetings paper and designer paper as well. I colored my image with Copic Markers E00, E15, E18, E13, G09, G28, R46, R14, and 100. I am using a dark green cardstock for the base and I cut it according to the directions you can find here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/postitholder. I decorated with my designer paper inside and out. I cut out my image and mounted it to the front of my card along with my sentiment which I stamped with Close to Cocoa ink. I used red and green ribbon for closing the holder. I added the post-it note and a small pencil. Here are some views of the inside and out.
Here is a side view of the holder closed.
Here is a view of the inside of the holder.
I was thinking after I made this holder, wait a minute I like to use bigger post-it notes. So I adapted the instructions above to make a larger holder.
For this holder I used Mark's Finest Papers Holly Greeting stamp set which is available for purchase along with all the other stamp sets used at http://www.marksfinestpapers.com.. I am also using Mark's Finest Papers Gold cardstock for my base. I used dark green and designer paper for my layers. I colored my image with Copic Markers G02, G09, B00, YR61, YR31, 100, R46, E15, E18, E29. I mounted my image and my sentiment to the dark green cardstock and then to the base. I used red and gold ribbon for the closing of the holder and I finished off the front with some gold gems. Here is a side and inside view of the holder.
