We made some cute Post-It note holders at class last week so I used the design for my Dynamic Duos Black Tie Challenge # 90 this week with the bright and cheery Daffodil Delight.
It is so simple to make- just take a 4″ X 10 1/2″ piece of card stock and score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/4″ on the long side. Fold on the score lines into each other to create an easel. Decorate a 4″ by 5 1/4″ rectangle that will adhere to the 2 3/4″ portion that sits up against the Post-It note pad. Make sure you put your adhesive on the 2 3/4″ piece not on the decorated panel when you adhere them to each other. That way you won’t have any stray adhesive showing on the back of the panel;)
I used the SU Fun Flowers Bigz die along with and the SU Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly to decorate my panel. The striped paper is from SU Gingham Garden and the Polka Dots from SU Polka Dot Parade. I used a stamp from Everyday Messages by Stampendous.
You have already seen the card I made for my wonderfully awesome mom last month but…here’s a little gift to go with the card. We made these at Stamp Class as a gift for a mother or a friend…or for yourself as some gals said they were keeping it!! I used the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and used coordinating colors to embellish a sweet blue candle. One friend said she was going to use this idea for shower favors…
