Note Worthy Post It Fun



It's that time of year that I make tons of handmade gifts to brighten someones day! My current project consisted of making post it note holders and these are super cute! The idea to use the CTMH Artiste to cut the base is inspired by Liz Johnson. Sometimes you just don't know how many images are on the carts and how you can switch up the usage!

Follow along to see how they came together and make a few of your own since you can't have enough Post It's in your life....



 I used CTMH Artiste and Art Philosophy cricut cart for the ease of being able to make a variety of them at once. So easy for the cricut to do most of the cutting. 
 I bought a 12 pack of Post It Notes in a variety of colors from WalMart. The base of the holder was cut using several card stock colors using the Artiste cricut cart pg 60 using the Card function. I cut it at 3 1/4 inches which worked well with the  3 x 3 Post It. I then folded along the score marks to make the holder. (FYI....the card cut is suppose to be for a mini album so its functionality has been repurposed for a post it holder).

 It took me awhile to decide how to decorate the front. I finally decided on using two CTMH stamps. I used All the Details for the "Note Worthy" sentiment which is so fitting. I also used Have A Happy Day for the flower and leaves. 

I fussy cut the flowers and leaves using a variety of CTMH inks. The Note Worthy banner shape was cut from the Art Philosophy cart using pg 68, Banner 1 cut at 2 inches. I absolutely adore the bow you can cut from Artiste so I used that cut as well from pg 56, Accent 3, G at 1 inch. The paper is CTMH Pathfinding, Seaside, Snowhaven and Brushed. 

I hope you enjoyed this project and are ready to make some for your friends. They make great teacher, co-worker gifts. 
Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!

  2. Super cute! It's always great when a cricut cut is repurposed for something totally different. I'm in love with the fussy cut flowers.
