Post it notes!

Here's a little cover I created to cover up some post it notes.

I started with some heavy weight scrap chipboard, which I cut about 1/4 inch bigger than a package of post it notes. I used a glue stick to adhere the paper to the chipboard and then rolled over it with my brayer to make sure that it stuck. I used a tag to stamp the "just a note" sentiment and layered it with coordinating card stock. I stamped a few flowers in matching chalk ink, added a white dot to the center of the flower with a gel pen, and finished with matching ribbon.

I lined the inside with paper from the same paper pack to give it a finished look. Stamped more of the flowers on the inside and the post it note papers. Finally binding everything together with the "Bind it all".

I was very please with how this turned out and plan to make a few more in the future. Have a great weekend!

Lovely! It makes the post its so much more attractive. I'm sure it keeps them from getting all bent up too.
