Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge #44 for August 30th

This week at Suzy B's Blooming Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Di's Digi Stamps. Of course it's Anything Goes!!!!! 

As a Design Team Member, I was remarking on a participant's, LORRAINE of Rainey's Craft Room, beautiful project that she had submitted for the challenge and came upon a unique item - a post-it-note holder which is super easy and I fell in love with it and just had to try to make one!!!!

For my post-it-note holder, I used Create with TLC Learned from Alice Mad Hatter and Miriam's Crafting Supplies Large Alice in Wonderland Charm and viola within 15 minutes, I had an adorable Post-it Note Holder!!!!

  • one (1) sheet 8-1/2 x 11 sheet cardstock
  • one (1) image for front
  • one (1) 3 x 3 post-it-notes (Dollar Store Special) - counts as Office Supplies
  • one (1) small pen (I found 3 in a package at JoAnn Fabrics that were attached to a key ring which gave me the jump ring - counts as Office Supplies
  • one (1) charm (optional and only if pen has optional jump ring on cap
  • I cut purple Recollection cardstock 7-3/8 x 3-1/4 inches and you can get 3 post-it-note holders from one sheet cardstock
  • score at 3-1/8 inch (this is the front), 3-1/2 inch, and 3-7/8 inches
  • fold at the 3-1/2 inch and make 2 small snips about 1/2-inch from the top and one from the bottom - this holds your pen
  • use sticky tape at the top and bottom on the back - this makes the pen holder pop out as you glue the 3-7/8 inch score to the back
  • use sticky tape to attach post-it-note-package to back
  • opposite of post-it-note, I got extra creative and used a scrap piece of hydrangea paper with Create with TLC Tea Hug in a Cup sentiment which was a previous freebie
  • Create with TLC Learned from Alice Mad Hatter was colored using Spectrum Noir markers with accents with gel pen (I got super creative here and scanned my finished Mad Hatter before I attached him to my post-it-note holder that I can print 4 on a sheet and make 4 more of these exact ones!)

I can't wait to make more now and thinking how great for Rosie's church craft table in November . . . .
