Next, make a tray to hold
3 1/2" square
Post-It Notes. You will need a 5 1/8" square piece of the card stock. Using the Boxer board, score on all four sides and the 1" mark. Fold and burnish the scored lines. Cut notches for the corner tabs.
I used a 1 1/4" square punch to on one side to make a notch in the tray to get to the paper easier.
Use the Permanent Tape on the corner tabs and fold up to a tray shape. Use the Tape to adhere the tray to the 1" segment on the "A-frame". Set this to the side.
To make the decoration for the Post-It Note holder, I started with Crafter's Companion Anthony & Burt stamps. I stamped the main image twice onto white card stock. I colored the main image with alcohol markers.
I colored Anthony (the fly) with glitter pens on the main
image and the extra one to pop up. I made Burt (the frog) a happy green color. The extra frog image was colored to match. I colored the big heart, only on the main image, with a couple of different reds. I added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to Burt's eyes (on the extra piece only) to make them shine. Then I used a product called Goosebumps that I sprayed on to make a "warty" feel on the extra frog.
While he was drying, I cut out the main image from the white card stock. I added alphabet stickers to spell "Notes" on the red heart. I attached it to the front of the note holder with the Permanent Tape.
After Burt was dry, I cut him and Anthony from the extra image. I attached the extra frog image with double-sided foam adhesive to pop him up off the main image. I also used the double-sided foam adhesive to pop Anthony (the fly) over top of the original image.
A last thought was to put a pen holder on the back of the note holder. I used a 1 1/2" x 2" piece of the same card stock used for the "A-frame" and the tray. I used the Boxer board for scoring again. I scored at 3/8", 3/4" 1 1/4" and 1 5/8". Please refer to photo for reference. I folded on the score lines. I attached the first section to the last section with the Permanent Tape. I attached this to the back of the note holder.
Add a pad of Post-It notes in the tray, and your project is ready to go!
Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
