I wanted to create some small inexpensive gifts that can easily be recreated. These would be a perfect little something for a teacher or for anyone who uses lots of Post-it Notes! I know I use post-its all day!
I have tons of chipboard coasters in my stash and knew they'd be a perfect size to use. I cut assorted foils to fit - Blush/Blush Star Struck Foiled Paper, Copper/Copper Glossy Foiled Paper and Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Since the chipboard is 4" square, you can easily get 3 note holders from one 9" x 12" foil sheet.
Using my Zutter bind-it-all, I punched holes in the foiled panels and added wire to create my little books.
Once the wire is added, I adhered the Post-It notepad inside. I stamped some phrases that I wanted to use, adhering them to the note pads with Beacon Adhesives. Then I added Petaloo flowers to the corner.

Finally, since I have someone specific who will love the purple note holder, I created a coordinating gift bag.

Rinea Foils emboss beautifully when used with an embossing folder. I cut the Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to fit within the embossing folder.
Isn't it gorgeous????
I used Beacon Tacky Glue to adhere the embossed panel to a white gift bag, then die cut Thanks from a left over piece of the foil. Since the foil is double sided, the possibilities are endless and all scraps can be used. I ran Thanks through my Xyron Sticker Maker for complete and easy adhesive coverage.
I adhered Petaloo flowers in the upper corner of the gift bag with brad so as to coordinate with the Post-it Note holder.
Aren't they awesome?
Who would you give these to?
Thanks for stopping by today.
