Desk Top Post It Note Holder

I have always loved small books, there are so many videos on You tube for the cute little Post It Note holders, so if this is what you are looking for, I have a few versions, which may save you ages searching and surfing, it will certainly benefit me, for when I want to make more, it will now be so easy to find them. The first I have chosen is a more sturdy version, I have called it a Desk version, as the video describes it, but I think because it is more sturdy, it is suitable to be more mobile than sitting on your desk. I first received one very similar from my good friend Yvonne (Meggymay's Way) some time ago, so at long last, have made a few myself. The video, being American states to use chipboard, I used mount card, or you can use cereal box card, glue and
sandwich two pieces together to make more sturdy. I chose to add some more colourful papers from a Basic Grey 8.5" square paper pad, of course this is where you have the chance to really personalise your book by the colours and style of papers you choose. I stamped a message inside. On the front cover, I stamped onto a piece of mount card a flower which was coloured with Distress inks and pencils, then outlined with a black marker pen. To add a little flourish, using my Crop-o-dile, I punched a hole close to the top of the spine,fixed an eyelet, added 3 jump rings and a charm, suitable for the person for whom they are going to be a small thank you gift. I hope you enjoy looking at the video, and maybe you too will make one of these really handy little notebooks. If so, I would love to see it, so please let me know when to visit your blog. I have a less involved version to follow, so please continue to look out for another additon to my tutorial blog. Thanks for dropping by.
