a little gift

Hello there...
as always I was pretty late getting all my Christmas gifts prepared and mailed out but seams most of them have already arrived, so happy about that.
As I was struggling with creative ideas I have found the post-it note holder I had already started in Summer with some lovely papers Janice from Sir Stampalot had sent me. Of course I had planed to use them with a summer image - the cold pink and green works well with silver for a winter look too. This is my second holder and I thought I had taken photos how the inside looks but I think I never did.
Essentially imagine a 12x12 paper and you score the paper so you have 9 sections scored. You would cut the 4 squares in the top /bottom corners out (this is just the visual) if you want to re-create this.. don't forget to add the height of your post-it note, so I added to my squares about 0.5. I used 2 12x12 of paper. If you create yourself a dummy first from old paper it's very easy to figure out.
I also stamped a little sentiment some of the Post-it notes in a corner. Made it look a little more finished.

 These are the supplies I used:
Stamp: Winter Wonderland Collection "Show the Way Tilda"
Dies: Magnolia Doo Hickey Mistletoe, poinsettia
Memory Box snowflake die
Stickles: Star Dust, Diamond, Silver
Coloring: copics, white gel pen
Tools: Scor pal

Totally gorgeous Claudia and beautiful colours, the stuff I used on Edwin on my card is a fine long glitter by Martha Stewart that came in a set but I am loving it for the bobbly bits on hats.
Hope you are all sorted for Christmas
