Hi! Thanks for the love on the Hershey Kiss Gift Card box. I am so happy you liked it so much! Today, I have a practical gift that would be great for just about anyone. A desktop calendar and Post-It note holder.
These would be great for teachers and are easy to put together. The base is a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of Marina Mist card stock folded in half. While you cannot see it in this picture, there is a support piece in the bottom. It measures 3 x 4 1/4 and is scored on the 3″ side at 1/2″, 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″. Valley fold the ends and mountain fold in the middle. Attach the flaps to both the inside front and inside back of the base.
The pocket for the Post-It Note holder measures 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. Score the 5 1/2″ side at 1/2, 1″, 4 1/2″ and 5″. Score the bottom at 1/2″ and 1″. Trim off the 3 little outer squares on the bottom and use the inside square for a tab. Place adhesive on the outer most flaps on all 3 sides to adhere to the base.
To decorate, I decided to make a scene using Lovely as A Tree. Stamp the trees in StaZon ink and then sponge with Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Sky. To get a better sunrise, create a mask using the 1 1/4″ circle punch (I did mine free-hand – should have used a mask.)
There you go – less than 1 sheet of card stock, a mini calendar and a Post-It Note pad and you have a beautiful gift for a co-worker, friend, teacher or anyone else you can think of!
FYI – if you haven’t checked it out (and even if you did) the Year-End Close Out sale is awesome! But – did you see ALL of it? There are many pages to the “Everything Else” category – so make sure when you are visiting my store here you click on “All” in the little pull down shown in the picture below so you don’t miss anything!
Thanks for stopping by!
