Post-It Note Holder

It's time for another challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenges.

Our theme this week for Challenge#177 is:
 Office Supplies
We want to see the creative way you incorporate office supplies on your card/project.
Our sponsors this week are:

Melonheadz : $15 Gift Certificate
The Robin's Nest : $10 Gift Certificate
Ok, a little about me first...I work in an office so this challenge got me thinking....What office supplies are there-Paperclips, stationary, staples, paper, file folders etc. What would I like to see on my desk?
 Well here is what I came up with. I made these for my coworkers and they all loved them...I hope you do too! ;o)
I made a Post-It Note holder:

I used the "Tiny Wishes" stamp set from Penny Black for both the image and "Just a note..." sentiment.

I just recently got this stamp set for my birthday (no, I will not state which birthday it was..hehehe) so was very excited to be able to use it.

I colored the image with SN markers and used Liquid Pearls Buttercup on the flower centers. I stamped the sentiment with Peppermint Pink ink from Color Box. This was then die cut with the Die-namics Blueprints 3 circle from My Favorite Things.

I used an 8 1/2 x 3 1/4 piece of Sparkle Mint Green Heavy Card and scored it. For the front flap I used the EK Tools Punch to give it a sweet border. Glitter tape from American Crafts and Pearls from my stash were used to dress it up.

I used scor-tape to glue the Post-It note pad inside and a magnet and metal disc for the closure.

There you have it...who knew office supplies at work could be so cute? ;o)

Happy Craftin'!
