Post-it Holder Purse Weekend Project

I was having some fun making these adorable Post-it Holder Purses. These were SO easy too! Really, they were. What makes them SO easy? They are made using a Sizzix die. I just ran the card stock through the Sizzix machine with the die and a few creases on the score lines and I had a cute little purse.

I cut mine from Crushed Curry card stock. I used the Crushed Curry polka dot ribbon for the handle. I taped it in place with the Sticky Strip tape. I needed something with a bit more stick to it than regular mono adhesive. I used a half a Velcro circle as a clasp to hold the holder shut.

What is nice about these is you can refill them. The last sheet or backing is taped on so when you are finished with the last note you just tape another pad in its place.

I added a few die cut flower pieces to the front. I stuck them together with a brad and set them in place on the front with a Dimensional. I added a few leaves and that part was done.

The word "notes" is from a special order stamp by Stampin' Up! I just selected a one line address stamp and I stamped it on white card stock, punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch and layered it with larger circles. I just taped it in place with mono adhesive. I didn't want it sticking up too much because it could get caught on things and get ruined.

On the very front of the holder I did run a scrap piece of Rich Razzleberry decorative paper on the die cut form and taped it in place over the Crushed Curry. It was SO easy to make and just too cute. I even made some using the "Thoroughly Modern File Folders." Those I didn't have to add anything to the flap, the folders are muli-tone. I added flowers and the "notes" like these have. SO quick and SO simple.

These would be great for gifts, including teacher gifts! They would be a fun Make n Take, a customer appreciation gift, Hostess appreciation gift, a fun Stamp Camp item and I made some to sell at the fall Craft Fair. Don't forget to use the angel stamp with the Stampin' Up! copyright on it if you are planning to sell them. I stamp mine before I put them together, it's much easier to stamp them when they are flat.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
