Summer Fun Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Summer Fun Blog Hop. Hope you enjoyed yesterdays projects and got some ideas for some future projects.

I have a brand new "Wall Decor" Cricut cartridge that I am giving away for blog candy. To be able to have a chance to win you need to:

1) Be a follower or become a follower
2) Post a comment on both Saturdays and Sunday Blog Hop post.
3) Comment at least one day on all 13 of the hop participants

Well enough of that an on with my project. My project is a gift for a friend who uses Post It Notes like they are a must on everything. LOL  I call her the Post It Queen. So for my project I made her 4 Post It Holders and decided that I needed something to hold them. So here is my Post It Holders and Post It Holder Box.


This box will hold 4 Post It Note Holders (that is 2 Post It's divided in 1/2).


These holders are not elaboratly decorated as you could be. My friend is very simple in her design and the paper is a bit busy.


The Post It's fit really nicely in to the holders with a 1/8" border on 2 sides and a 1/4" on the bottom.

The papers used was Bo-Bunny Back to Backs Mango Luau.

Cuts Sizes and Score Lines for the Box are:

8x8 for box scored at 3" and 5" then turn paper and score 2" and 6".

Fold all score line. Then cut the 2 small middle piece to make your tabs.

Cut 2 pieces 8" x 1" and score both pieces at 2" and 6". Take 1 of the pieces and cut off the 2 scored ends.

Cut 1 1/2" x 12 piece and score at 1 7/8", 3 7/8", 8", and 10".

Cut Sizes and Score Lines for the Post It Holder are:

Cut a 6 3/4 x 3 3/4 and score at 3 1/4" and 3 1/2"

Cut a 3 3/4 x 1 1/2 piece

Now you can add whatever you want for your embellishments. I added a Scallop punch, a Circle punch and a 5 petal flower punch with a Prima Peebles.

Ok, now on to your next blog, which is Monica at Scraps2treasure.

Here is a list of all the hop participants, so if you get lost here is where you can find your way back.

  15. Kathryn,
    I've seen a few of these done lately.... what a really cute way to dress them up would make a great gift for a teacher, great for back to school!!!! Hmmmmm too bad my kids are too old for that.
    Ps. what a great cartridge that's up for grabs too.... it's one I've always wanted but, just never gotten it. There are a few like that. They have soooo many to choose from and so do I.
