ISS Method Monday!


Today was my turn on the InStyle Stamps blog to host "Method Monday". For those of you new to ISS- Every Monday, all the fabulous DT members have a turn to share a tutorial on a fun method or technique. This was actually my first time doing a tutorial so I hope everything is clear!

I found this Post-It™ Note Holder project on a great resource, Splitcoast Stampers and thought it would be perfect!

First, the supplies:
- (1) 4"x7" piece of card stock
- (3) 3" x 3¾" pieces of card stock
- (3) 2¾" x 3½" pieces of patterned paper
- (1) ¼" x 1½" piece of card stock
- (2) 5" strips of ribbon
- (1) small pencil or pen
- Post-It™ Notes
- Strong adhesive tape (I used red-line tape)
- Dimensional adhesive (Pop-dots)
- Scoring tool (I used a Scor-Pal)
- Scissors
- Stamped & colored image
- Embellishments

Step 1: With the 4"x7" piece of card stock, Score on the long side at 3¼" from both sides.

Step 2: Fold on both score lines to form a ½" spine.

Step 3: Mat each piece of patterned paper on the 3" x 3¾" pieces of card stock.

Step 4: Adhere one of the matted pieces to the front of the folded cover.

Step 5: Using the red-line tape secure the ribbon in the center of the inside cover.

Step 6: Adhere the other 2 matted pieces of patterned paper to the inside to cover the ribbon ends.

Step 7: Take the backing sheet off of the Post-It™ Notes and place them in the bottom right corner.

Step 8: Take the ¼" x 1½" piece of card stock and wrap it around the pen/pencil and adhere the ends together.

Step 9: Using the red-line tape, place & stick the card stock loop to the base of the cover, under the Post-It™ Notes.

Step 10: Close the holder and tie the ribbon in a bow.

Step 11: Decorate the front! I colored and trimmed out Meiko, mounted her with pop dots to a scalloped square. I also added "Notes" using diecut letters.

Thanks for stopping by- I hope you give the Post-It™ Note Holder a try!
