Post-It Note Holder

Hello! Welcome to the first tutorial here at Creative Clear Stamps!  I thought I would make is *easy~peasy* this first week and show how to quickly make a Post-It Note Holder. Are you addicted to sticky notes???  I am definitely a "sticky note person"...I have them everywhere...in my purse, in my Bible, in the kitchen, next to the computer, on my craft table...you get the idea. With Thanksgiving a little over 7 weeks away, I know we ALL have a lot to keep track of with grocery lists, things to pick up, a list of cleaning, who's coming, etc. So I wanted to make a cute little holder to keep in my purse when something strikes me as important to jot down.

I found some cute little orange trimmed post it notes in the Dollar Spot section at Target a month ago and knew it would work perfectly for this!   Since the notepad itself is a 3 1/2" square, I needed to make my holder just a smidgen larger. So I took a piece of dark brown sturdy cardstock and cut it 4" x 8 1/2".   Then I scored it twice at 4" and 4 1/2".   You can see below.....

Here is the inside (I just took some pop dots and centered the note pad in place):


I thought Turkey Day was perfect for mine and used some Basic Grey Indian Summer designer paper. I stamped the turkey with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored him with Copics. Then added the words "Turkey Day" from one of the sentiments and also used one of the cutest sayings in the whole set: "First one done, does dishes" I figured the one who is organizing the meal, buying the ingredients, cooking most of the meal can find some relief in sight if someone ELSE cleaning up! :o) I know my daughter was a HUGE help last year and I am sure she will be this year as well.

I hope you have enjoyed this quick little project and they would make great little gifts for teachers, co-workers, friends and family. I like to make a little assortment of hand made gifts and this would certainly be something nice and easy to include in a gift basket! Have a wonderful day!
Blessings,

  2. I love that Basic Grey Indian Summer paper and the turkey is just adorable! We celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend here in Canada but since we're getting married this weekend, I don't have to worry about cooking a turkey! ;)
