Post It Holder Tutorial

My project for today is one that gets done several times a year in my craft room. I love this for lots of different gift giving occasions. This one is for a birthday. I will be doing some soon to get a jump start in the holidays...

For now, here is the how-to..

First, start with a piece of card stock 3.25 inches x 11 inches

Score as shown below:

Fold on the score lines:

Cut as shown for the pen opening:

Fold and add adhesive:

I wanted to use this pretty flourish stamp from Close To My Heart but didn't have an acrylic block big enough. I had seen, somewhere in my web land travels, a suggestion to use a Cuttlebug embossing plate... well, it worked!

Here are a few of my trial and errors:

The one on the left, that is similar to my final project, shows how I stamped the sentiment on the wrong end...

And the finished Post It Holder...

Stamps sets used:
Close To My Heart C1503 - The Bests Things
Close To My Heart C1538 - Girls Rock
Close To My Heart - Sky
Close To My Heart - Gypsy

I don't have any of the small pens that this needs ( shopping trip to Staples on my future ! ) so I used a regular pen...
