Post it

Today I thought I would do a post about post it's. More specifically a project I did for a post it note holder. I found several different tutorials on line for these and each seemed to have different measurements but not exactly what I was looking for. In the end I came up with my own design for it.

With the little frosty fellow adorning the cover of these you could call them snotes (snow notes) or not. I used my cricut to cut out the snowmen and the scalloped circles. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the white scallop circle with the snowflakes. Added a little glitter, but I may have had more on me than on the snowflakes.
Now I'm trying to decide what my next project will be. So many choices.

I love these. Are you going to sell them? I want to make or buy some for my friends at work. They are so cute.What a great idea.

Ann, these are just freakin' adorable! I love the effect of the embossing! I have seen these a lot of ways also, but I really love the matchbook style and the velcro...that rocks!

Catherine said...

I love your little snowmen! So cute! I had fun in my craft room as well this weekend and finally got some Christmas cards made. It's very relaxing isn't it?

Hope you had a good weekend Ann!

FishHawk said...

I keep being reminded that this is, after all, a crafting site, but I don't care. YUCK! (A picture of Duke a day will keep this jerk at bay. Probably.)

Philippa said...

Snotes? Fantastic!! Love the embossing ...

Jean said...

Ann, They are very profession looking and I love Frosty!

Russ said...

This project is great. I am sure your next project will be also.

Sandra said...

these are really cute, they would make great gifts in an office place, I was team lead for 21 people and each year strained my brain for something that would not break the bank for each of them. this would have been perfect. but lucky me I am retired and don't have to worry about it now.

Anne said...

Those are so adorable. I wish I was crafty.

What a great idea. I like this since sometimes they get dog-eared(sorry Duke) in a desk drawer, or being pushed around on top.

Bossy Betty said...

What a cute idea! Post-its are my favorite and they deserve their own little jackets!

Donna said...

I just don't know How you come up with all your cute ideas!!

Great idea, and I adore the name "snotes". You are so creative. I'm always amazed at your projects.

Ann said...

Shinade thank you. I think I'm even getting into the Christmas mood lately

B boys mom these were a batch I whipped together for Christmas gifts. One of these days I may get an etsy store up but as of now, it's not happening. I would be happy to give you the measurements for these or make you some if you would like. Just let me know.

Tanyia I liked the matchbook style too and the tutorial that I found for one wasn't exactly what I had in mind
