I made myself a little telephone Post-It pad holder for Fitztown's Challenge #8 - Anything But a Card. Here it is:
Wasn't I clever? ;) I cut a thin piece of cardboard and two strips of printed G45 paper from their Communique Collection. I glued one strip of paper on front of the cardboard and on back of the cardboard. I matted the telephone Karen Sheltrown image on a red mat bordered by a thin strip of white paper punched with a flower patterned punch. I colored the image with Copic markers. I edged the entire project with black ink. Something I realized I probably should have done BEFORE I glued the entire project together but as I pointed out earlier, my head's a little fuzzy and I wasn't thinking clearly. I glued two magnets underneath the paper on the front two panels facing each other. I used temporary double sided tape on the back of the pad to secure it to the holder.
Quick measurement run down:
Cut paper 3 1/4 inches by 8 1/2 inches
Score at 1 1/2, 1 7/8, 5 and 5 3/8 inches
You can easily use one strip of sturdy card stock paper. These are quick and you can make half a dozen in no time for gifts to co-workers, teachers, home office, etc. It took me longer because I wanted a sturdier one for my own personal use that I could use over and over again. But you can make these to gift with pretty printed card stock. You'd want to use a strong adhesive to secure the pad to the back of the holder and you can substitute Velcro dots on the inside of the front flap.
By the way, images are still being downloaded to the store so check back often. If you see an image you'd like to have, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the link to the image and something can get worked out for you. :)
So that's my little project for today. Don't forget to join us for our current challenge! Hence... the Post-It pad holder! :)
