Post It Note Holder and Tutorial

Hi everyone! It's my day to post at Jaded Blossom and I have a fun  Post It Note holder and short tutorial to share. 

Here is the project I made for today

Isn't this cute?! I love that adorable worm!
Today I am going to show you how I made this using the Jaded Blossom Lollipop Die. It is the PERFECT size for post it notes!

Here is what you will need

Jaded Blossom-
Score Board
Sticky Back Hook and Loop circles
Decorative papers and die cut
Post It Notes

You will start by cutting out the Lollipop Die.
Then you will score it with the scallop side to the right, at 6 1/2 and 6 7/8 inches. Fold along those score lines on the scallop side and the first 2 score lines on opposite side.
Glue in a Post It Note pack to the back side of the Lollipop Die.
Now you're ready to decorate!

I cut out a piece of blue cardstock to fit the font flap and stamped the background with the Paint Splatter 2.
I cut the worm from the PPPR Bookworm Couple file and stamped the eyes with the Peachy Keen Erkle and Merkle face stamps.
I cut the ruler and clipboard from decorative paper and glued them on. (This paper is from the Doodlebug Take Note 6X6 pad)
To finish, I cut the Flag Die 2 and stamped the sentiment from the Encouragement stamp set. I cut this die down to fit the exact width of the post it note holder, gluing onto the flap just above the scallop border. I added the Hook and Loop tab to the flap for the closure. 
(OPTIONAL-If you want to cover the score marks on back of holder, add another piece of cardstock cut to size)

I am going to enter this into the PPPR Smarty Pants Challenge.

I hope you all liked my project and thanks for visiting! 
Have a great day!
