Post It Note Holder

This was a fun and easy little holder to make! It is not my original idea, but I can't remember where I got the instructions from. This holder will hold a 3x3" Post It pad.

The main piece is a piece of cardstock 3 1/16" x 9", scored at 3", 3 3/8", 6 1/2", and 6 7/8". I then used a Fiskars border punch on the end piece for the scalloped edge. If you wish to have a straight edge, cut the cardstock to 3 1/16" x 8 1/2" and make the score marks the same as before.

The front cover pieces are 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" (I used red), and 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" (patterned). Cut 2 of each if you want to cover the back as well. The flap pieces are 1 3/8" x 2 3/4" (red) and 1 1/8" x 2 1/2" (patterned). The flap is held down with a velcro circle.

The flowers on mine were made using Papertey Ink's Beautiful Blooms II #1 dies in my Cuttlebug. All cardstock is Papertrey Ink, except the yellow which is Bazzil. The patterned paper is Bo Bunny, and the brad is Recollections.

"Hi There" Ladybug Card

Yay! It's scraplift time! LOL

My inspiration for this card came from HERE. Eerily similar, aren't they?

The card is standard A2 size and I rounded the right side corners with my new We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. All of the cardstock is from Papertrey Ink, except the black, which is DCWV. The ladybug was cut at 2.5" with the Cricut using the Walk In My Garden cartridge. The background paper is from the My Mind's Eye Simply Delightful stack, and the velvety red and pink dotted paper is from a Michael's clearance sale a few years ago - the maker is unknown.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mega Mixed Messages set and was stamped with VersaMagic chalk ink Hint of Pesto. 

The circle and scalloped circle were cut in the Cuttlebug with Nestabilities.  The pink scalloped border was punched using the Fiskars Threading Water punch.

Super easy and versatile enough for lots of different occasions!
