Post It Note

So it's summer here in Australia, and it's funny how you save your spring-cleaning for summer.  It mainly coincides with the fact that we're on a couple weeks of leave which means time to get stuck in to doing chores and tasks you put off and off and off......  Tonight's chore is to sort out my tax drawer (insert a very sad face here).

So to reward myself, I make a card, project or something here and there.  I've even picked up my knitting again.

Today's share is a little post it note holder that I created using the Envelope Punch Board.  I followed a video tutorial over at YouTube and used my favourite colours too!

I've used the very pretty Gingham Garden papers to create both the box and the belly band.  Just love the colours through this range of papers.  Love Love Love.

I've used Daffodil Delight ink to stamp my flowers (four times) which I put together with glue dots and slightly curled up the petals.

I've stamped my leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink and hand cut them out (argh, must get me the matching dies to the Secret Garden set!!).  The one great thing about Stampin' Up!s papers that I adore, you can look up the colours they've used for the papers so you can coordinate your inks and embellishments just perfectly!

And of course, all flowers need a centre.  These large pearls are just perfect!!  I don't use these half as much as I should.  And of course, you can see my post it notes just peeping out of the little box.  So cute!

So here's what I used:
Stamps: Flower Shop & Secret Garden
Inks: Pear Pizzazz & Daffodil Delight
Papers: Gingham Garden DSP & Whisper White CS
Accessories: Flower punch, Envelope Punch Board & Large Pearls

The instructions to make the Post It Note holder: are at We R Memory Keepers and their basic instructions to make the holder:

To make any size custom box using your Envelope Punch Board, here is the basic formula you can follow:

1. Measure the length and width of the item you need the box for, and then find the appropriate card size on the Envelope Punch Board.
2. To calculate your paper size, measure the depth of the item, multiply it by 2, and then add that to the length and width of your paper size on the punch board.  Cut your paper accordingly.
3.  Find your score line measurement on the punch board and add the item’s depth measurement to that.  That’s where you will line up your paper to start punching and scoring.
4. Once you finish punching and scoring, line your paper up again on the original score line measurement found on the punch board.  Score your paper on all four sides.
5. Cut out each corner following the inner score lines that intersect.
5. Fold and crease all eight score lines, punch one corner to round, and then tape your box together.  Embellish as desired.
