Post It Note Holder Instructions

As promised (hello to the ladies from my Dayboro workshop!), here are the instructions/measurements for the Post It Note Holder I've been demonstrating at my workshops this month:

Cut a piece of cardstock to 9cm x 21cm. (You can get 3 of these from an A4 sheet.) Score at 9cm, 10cm and 11cm from one end.

Fold along score lines to create a "W" shape.
Fold back on itself (I don't know how else to word it!) so that you just see the middle fold. Cut two snips up to the score line.
Fold back out again to create the shape of the post it holder. Pop out the part that you snipped so that it sits out and creates the pen holder. Use some SNAIL or sticky strip to adhere the fold together.
Add a 3 inch square of DSP. This one is Bella Rose and the base is Riding Hood Red.

Add some ribbon. This one is the Kiwi Kiss / Vanilla Satin Ribbon.
Add some embellishments on top! Here I have stamped a flower from the Eastern Blooms set in Riding Hood Red, cut them out, added a green rhinestone brad to each centre (from the "ice" set of brads) and popped up on dimensionals. The squares beneath are 4.5 and 5cm squares in whisper white and kiwi kiss.

This is beautiful, and so easy to make. I've been on the lookout for an easy hostess/door prize item and this will really fit the bill. I am so totally CASEing it - full credit to you, of course. Thank you again. (Love reading your blog, by the way.)
