Notes Holder Weekend Project

Once again I had trouble downloading my photos.  I use to be able to just highlight the two photos and click the button and the two would download at the same time.  I tried it twice and I ended up having to download them individually.  I was just about to just use the one photo but I did manage to get both of them on here.  It never use to be that difficult to do.  The software must have been updates.  That's usually when things go wrong!

Anyway, on to my project here.  I saw this cute note holder on Angie's Chic'n Scratch blog.  I would love to have taken credit for this fun idea but alas, it was not me that discovered it!  Though it is SO me!! LOL

To make these you just use the tags die cut.  It was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be.  The die cuts the shape, makes that slit and scores the center at the same time. What more could you ask for? 

You fold the tag in half.  Add your image to the front (rounding the corners of the background paper) and add your small post it notes to the inside along with a note. 

I used the retired set "Teacher's Pet."  I cut out the elephant and after I colored it I then tied a piece of Bakers Twine around the trunk.  On the inside I stamped the "don't forget" words from elephant stamp.  It's such a great image and great words for these note holders!!  You can use any images you want on yours.  

Once you are done you tuck the bottom of the tag into the slit on the top part. Add some ribbon and it's done!  How easy is that?  And how cute is that?  Can you see making these in a winter theme for stocking stuffers, or for make n takes, hostess appreciation gifts, customer appreciation gifts, craft fairs, teacher's gifts and don't forget about a Stamp Camp project!!!  You can even get the kiddies involved with this project!!!  These are VERY fun to make and I can assure you I will be making more of these.  I want to try to figure out some thing with them so I can use them at the bridal shower coming up this fall!  I have lots of time to figure out what to put on them.

Anyway, if you have time and the die for this go make some, they are SO fun!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
