Altered Christmas Post-Its
Here's some Altered Christmas Post-Its, using retired Stamping' Up! DSP (designer series paper). Finding the measurements is always so hard to find, so here they are:
Cut Card Stock 3 1/4 x 7 3/8.
Score 3 1/8; 3 1/2; 3 7/8.
I found that Tombow Multi-glue is the best for this project. The tape strips don't seem to hold things down. I recommend SU card stock because it is study enough to handle the post its and pen -- with nice, sharp scoring.
How to actually make these? I have found a few tube videos the help. But basically, you are scoring the paper, making a sturdy mini pen holder by flatting one edge, which I glue down, and snipping the side of one to be the base of the pen holder. I realize my directions may not be the best, so in the future I will do a how-to video.
I packaged them in 4 1/4 x 6 cello bags, folding over the top. Then I stapled the bag and topper together, covering the staple with a punched snowflake, and adding a rhinestone to the centers.
