Tutorial Tuesday - Post-It Note Holder

Welcome to Sunflowers and Dragonflies Tutorial Tuesday. You might wonder why I am posting a tutorial that has been around for ages. Well, I decided that it was time to dig out some popular older tutorials and dust the cobwebs off. With fresh new designs, designer papers, and new stampers, I thought it would benefit us all to revisit older tutorials. Believe it or not, this was my first ever attempt at making a post-it note holder. Can you believe that?!

Cut cardstock to size 7 1/2" x 3 1/2" and score at 3 1/2" and 4". It's that simple. You are now ready to decorate your cover. When you adhere your post-it notes into your holder, glue the pad in place.

There are many ways to decorate your holder. To double-mat, cut the bottom mat 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and cut top mat 3" x 3". Top mat corners were cut with decorative scissors. Brads were placed into the bottom mat.

Why not add a sentiment? A colour choice, such as gold and brown, is perfect for that man in your life.

Have fun with your post-it note holder!
