Post-its For the Purse...

I have another fun non-card project to show you to end the week. This is a Post-It Note holder. These notes aren't the square kind though. They're actually index card size, lined, and backed with the famous sticky stuff that makes them Post-Its. I have a girlfriend who's addicted to Post-Its, so this is something she'd love to have in her purse or in her car.

This one was made using leftover cardboard that comes with all the designer paper and Simply Scrappin' sets, retired Loves Me paper (I miss that stuff!) and matching grosgrain ribbon. The only trouble I had was getting the notes to stay stuck to the folder. I resorted to Sticky Strip, but still had trouble. I may try making a different closure system the next time I make these.

There's a great tutorial for this that I found at Amy Celona's UStamp4Fun website. That woman is the queen of 3-D projects, and I don't need to reinvent the wheel that she has already so creatively decorated! If you have never visited her site, you MUST! Go to the project gallery and look for 6x6 notebook, and there will be photos and instructions. Thanks, Amy!

Here's one last shot of what the item looks like when opened.

Thanks for visiting today! Have a wonderful weekend, even though it's swampy!!
