I was having the hardest time coming up with an idea for a project for stamp club. I had played around with a few ideas but I just wasn't feelin' it. Then I saw Joani's Post-it note holder and thought it was a great idea for our stamp club project tonight. I like to make projects with my club ladies that we can use or give as a gift, not just a card every time. Wouldn't this be great on your desk or by the phone? I think I'm going to give this one to my son's teacher. It never hurts to kiss up, right?
Instead of making a little box to attach to the back, I pulled out my Big Shot, cut out two scallop envelopes, and made a little box, just like the tea holder box. The box was the exact size I needed and I didn't have to cut and score more pieces, plus it is way cute! Aren't the 3.5" pencils perfect tucked in there?
When I started making my example project I decided to use the color inspiration on ColourQ challenge #47. I really like the color combo and how it worked so well with my school theme. Once my project was all finished I searched the house, but Post-it notes were nowhere to be found. I was excited to find a package of Post-it's that seemed to be made for my project...a slightly lighter Bermuda Bay...at the store!
