Sticky Note Holder

Here we are, a lovely little sticky note holder, a quick and easy project for a friday evening!

This project is super simple, using one piece of cardstock and a bit of DSP! I Love the new In Colours, Blackberry Bliss inparticular, and the MoonLight DSP Stack shows it off so well I had to use it too….

The trick is to measure your sticky notes!

I’ve attempted to explain in the video, however, I do like written instructions for fiddly projects like this….

You need to measure your notes, across the width and height (this will give you a square measurement, the front of your holder), and then measure the depth of the pad. Then, you need to take the height of the front and the height of the back (hopefully this is the same number!) and add them together, along with the depth. I’m hoping I’m making sense here ….. maybe time for a diagram.

So, to get the lenght of the cardstock you need: 3″ for the font, 3″ for the back, and 5/16″ for the depth. Now, if you can accurately cut to 5/16″ great, I cant, so I’ve cut mine to 3/8″. This gives me a piece of Cardstock 6 3/8″ by 3″.

The DSP is a 1/4″ shorter and narrower than the front of your sticky notes eg: 3×3″ notes, 2 3/4″x2 3/4″ DSP

The rest of the cover is decorated with petite petals cut from that gorgeous Blackberry Bliss, and a sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts, punched with the Modern Label Punch.
