Spring Flower Post It Pads - Stampin Dreams Blog Hop - Throwback Thursday

 Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the first Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop of 2022, the theme is 'Throwback Thursday'. I've decided to recreate some little post it pads that I made back in early 2021. I love these, they are quick and easy to make as treats for co-workers, teachers, customers or to sell at craft fairs.  I thought that I would use some of our lovely new spring papers featuring my favourite spring flowers, daffodils and tulips. Let me show you how to make them.


1 piece of card stock 3 1/4" x 8" (You can get 3 of these from one sheet of A4, I've used crushed curry and real red)
1 piece of dsp 3 1/8" x 1", 3 1/8" x 2 7/8" and 3 1/8" x 1 7/8" (I've used Flowering Fields and Daffodil Afternoon)
Scraps of real red, crushed curry and basic white card for the sentiments
Sentimental Swirls stamp set
Real Red ink
Crushed Curry ink
Flirty Flamingo ink
Double Oval Punch
Multipurpose adhesive
Simply scored
Bone folder
3" x 3" post it pad
Iridescent rhinestones


On the long side, score the card stock at 2", 2 3/8", 5 1/2" and 5 7/8", fold and burnish all the score lines.

This holder folds around the post it pad, so decide which end of it will be the bottom flap and add the 1" strip of dsp to that closest to the fold but with a small border all the way round the bottom and sides. Add the 1 7/8" strip to the other end, this will be the top flap - make sure you have the direction of the paper going in the right way.  Then adhere the largest piece to the back, keep an eye on your directional prints, you don't want flowers upside down.

Add glue to the back of the post it pad and position inside close to the fold lines top and bottom but with a border either side.  Fold up the bottom flap and fold down the top one. 

Stamp the sentiment on the scrap of basic white and punch out with the Double Oval Punch, punch out the matting oval in the card stock colour and layer the two together. I've also stamped a butterfly on these and added a rhinestone.  Add a couple of dimensionals to the back of the oval and add to the lower flap so that it overlaps the top and that one will tuck behind to keep it closed.

You can make this quickly and simply in all of the colours using all of the dsp, the possibilities are endless, why don't you give them a try, even if you only make one for your craft desk or your handbag, they are very useful.
