The stamp set I used, Razzle Dazzle, is NOT retiring, but the paper, Razzleberry Lemonade is. I've loved this paper and really I only had scraps left of it but I knew this was my last chance to really use it so I just had to get it out. I also used Crushed Curry, which is also saying goodbye. Sniff. It took me a while to warm up to you Crushed Curry, but you will be missed.
The other thing that will be missed?
All of the polka dot ribbon. So so sad.
In addition to the post-it note holder, I've also been dying to try my hand at these cool rolled flowers. They seem a bit fussy at first but once you get going, they're pretty easy. As long as your fingers can take it.
Here's the inside view. I should have written a little note there on the post-it. Something like "Natalie is Awesome!"
To learn how to make the cute little paper roses I used, click here to watch a great tutorial. My favorite part is that you can make them any size you want and you don't need any special tools, just scissors and glue. I punched out 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circles of cardstock for the roses I made but you can make whatever size you like.
To learn how to make the little post-it holder, you HAVE to watch this video on Dawn Griffith's blog. She does a great job of showing exactly what to cut and how to fold. After watching her do it, the project gets really simple but trying to figure it out on your own is nearly impossible. It was for me anyway.The measurements that are shown on Dawn's lovely site are:
Cut to 7 3/8 x 3 1/4"
Score at 3 1/8, 3 1/2 and 3 7/8"
I tweaked it because the post-its that I bought were a bit bigger. My measurements are:
Cut to 7 9/16" x 3 1/4"
Score at 3 1/8, 3 9/16 and 4"
