Hello and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving and has recovered from their food comas! I went to Target today and found the Christmas sticky note pads in the $1 section. I was so excited and bought 6! There were two different designs. So it is that time of year to make matchbook post-it note holders! These make great stocking stuffers.
These are 3x3 sticky note pads. I cut my cardstock and score a little differently then some tutorials. I cut the cardstock at 3.25 x 9.75 inches. Then I score the long side at 3 5/8" , 4" , and 8.25" I like to keep it a little long because I don't know which border or edge punch I might use. The extra length ensures the top flap will show through the punch design if needed. I can always trim the top flap if I need to.
Here's a quick tip....I cut the sentiment with my Cricut at .7" Yes that says point 7 inches! Which is small. Well sometimes the Cricut or rather the paper (or both maybe) do not cut very well especially when the design is intricate or small. Some papers have a white core and the white core doesn't always cut well, also. So I take my cardstock and I put it face down on my mat. For this image, I also flipped it so it would cut backwards. I still want the front of the cardstock to face up when I am done. For some reason, if the smooth side is up, the blade cuts cleaner and I don't have torn parts.
