Post a Note!

Hi, Doreen here from polkadotpaperprincess.blogspot.com with a quick tutorial.

I made a couple of post-it-note holders for gifts. 

You will need:

1 sheet card stock 5 1/2 x 11 inches
1 piece  5 1/2 x 5 1/2 sheet card stock
1 piece 4 x 4
2 pieces 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 pattern paper (optional)
Post it notes
Things to embellish with.

Score paper at 5 1/4, 5 3/4, 8 1/4
Fold along the score lines.   It will look like this.
 Add adhesive to the smaller folded section.
Add the smaller piece of card stock to this section and embellish.

 Take the 4x4 piece of cards stock and score it at 1/2 " on all sides.  The snip one piece of each corner as show.  I like to keep two side long and two sides short.   Tape on the tabs and fold in to make a box.

This one only used goodies from my stash, sorry no Cricut.  You will notice I forgot to add the post-it-note holder (box) to this one.  I went back and added it on.  I did it really early in the morning!  lol!
 This one I used a Greeting Farms image, colored with Copics and made wings for her from Martha Stewart Elegant Cakes.
These are fast, simple and cute gift ideas that can made to match any size post-it-notes you have.  Now go root through your treasures and make a couple to have on standby for quick gifts!
