Here are pictures of the card closed and the Easel card opened:
|Open with Post-it Note holder|
|Project # 285 of this year|
- You'll need 2 pieces of cardstock: 1 for the base and one for the pop-up
- Base: 11" x 4 1/4" - score at 2 3/4" and again at 5 1/2". You can see the score lines on the side-view above
- Pop-up piece is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2": you will attached this (after decorated) only with the bottom half to the scored piece of the base
- POP-UP PIECE:
- 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
- purple mat cut @ 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
- green mat cut @ 5 1/4" x 4"
- Purple strip cut @ 1 1/4" x 4"
- Pink strip cut @ 1" x 3 3/4"
- Twine and button added
- Banner hand cut for sentiment matting
- CREATE A CRITTER Racoon p. 33 cut @ 3 1/2" (this cart is over 6 months old, but I just don't ever get tired of using it!)
- Sentiment from TSQ Royal Castle Shoppe "Royal Garden" stamp set
- Bottom (inside):
- 3 3/4" x 2 1/2" for decorated bottom piece
- You'll either have to use pop dots to attached bottom piece so card will stay open
- attach a Post-It note pad here and this will allow card to stay open as well
This is so fun! I hope you'll go make some of these and give them as thank you gifts to all those people that make your day a lot easier... like the receptionist at the doctor's office or the receptionist at the complex where you live or your secretary or someone else you now that would enjoy this on their desk. They will think of you every time they reach for a post-it note!
