STOCKING STUFFER

As promised, I'm back with my idea of a good stocking stuffer: a cute, practical, different and homemade... Post-It Booklet! These are so easy to make, here is a list of what you need:

-Post It
-a glue gun ( or some heavy duty adhesive)
-a piece of paper
-some embellies ( a stamped image, an initial, a tag, some ribbon...)
- Scotch Reclosable Fasteners ( = velcro, mine are from 3M, I highly recommend these guys! )

First, measure your Post-It, mine is a 3" square. You need a strip of paper that is 3" wide. For the length = twice the 3' square + twice the thickness of the post it pad ( 1/2 " here )+ 2" to close. The glue gun comes into play to glue the top part of the pad to the booklet. I think you get a clearer idea by looking at the picture above but if you have any questions, don't hesitate!

La traduc., c'est par ici! Vous etes toujours la les scropinettes? Voici donc une idee de cadeau tout mimi dont tout le monde a besoin : un Porte Post-it! J'ai trouve ces Velcros 3M absolument geniaux, c'est fou tout ce que l'on peut faire avec ces petites bestioles...
Donc l'idee est de commencer par mesurer son bloc de Post It. Le mien faisait 8 cm. On coupe une bande de papier de 8 cm de large. La longueur = 2 fois les 8cm + 2 fois l'epaisseur du bloc + quelques centimetres pour le rabat ( plus le rabat est grand, plus on peut l'agrementer ).
N'hesitez pas a me poser vos questions si vous en avez. Aller, une derniere petite image pour la route!

Basic Grey p.p + Hero Arts stamps were used for these three Post-It booklets.
