Awwww, don'cha just want to make one like this?? I love these new stamps from CC Designs, (I got mine Tuesday), and I knew what I wanted to do with them immediately. I stamped the birds from Love Ya Much on watercolor paper with black stazon, and used my No Copics, No Problem Tutorial to color them in. I punched them out with the mega oval punch, and used dimensionals to attach it to the giga scalloped oval - Tutorial HERE (or Video) if you don't have this punch. I dotted the scallops with the white gel pen, and used sticky strip to add this to the front of the holder. This will keep the ribbon in place, so it is not falling off when you untie it. I added the Bazzill flower and the American Crafts Foam Flower ( Both from All That Scraps) with a pink brad. Ready ? Well, let's get to 'er.
- 1 piece CS measuring 7 7/8 X 3 3/4
- 1 piece ribbon, 20 inches long
- scoring tool
- extra paper for embellishing front
- stamp (mine are the new CC Designs stamps)
- post-it notes
The part in the middle, that is cut out, needs to be pushed outward. You will end up with the picture on the right. You put sticky strip on the two outside pieces. * IMPORTANT - Make sure this is on the 3 3/4 side, or your post-it pad will not fit inside. A bit more explaining HERE*
You push the two sides down, and this will give you you the inside edge to glue you post-it note pad down onto. I used sticky strip to hold my pad down, and took off the back page, to make sure it would stick. Now, you need to attach your ribbon over the holder, and this will be what holds it closed, as shown in the first picture.
Oh, by the way, the sentiment was made using a $1 alphabet set from my Dollorama!! YEP - the whole alphabet, wood mounted for $1. They are a nice font, not too casual, and are about 1/4 inch each. So, same size as the snap stamp, but a WHOLE LOT CHEAPER!!
P.S. - I drew the bow on the head of one bird to make her a girl!
