If you are a blog surfer like me, I'm sure you are grateful to all the wonderful bloggers who freely share their ideas, templates, and instructions. This project came from Joy (tamikos.blogspot.com). She generously gave the measurements to produce the holder from one 8-1/2" x 11"of cardstock. I'm a little challenged as a paper engineer, but I eventually figured it out so I'm sure you can too. I used the textured paper from the tropical pack of AC cardstock. The printed papers are from K and Co.(poppyseed and greenhouse designs). The topiary was cut from a border (greenhouse) package and the bauble came from the same line. The dimensional flowers and butterfly are (poppyseed) grand adhesion stickers. The girl is a Hero Arts stamp that was colored and cut out. The words with the girl were stamped with a Dandelion Designs rubber stamp. The other two stamped sayings are from a Hero Arts set. The short colorful pens are from Ben Franklin Crafts. I discovered that the Tim Holtz clear ruler was a great help in doing this project because of the precise markings that go right to the very edge. I just purchased a Martha Stewart scoring board and I think that it would be useful for this project. I'm going to test out the scoring board on my next card project which has lots score lines. Mahalo Joy for your information and generosity in sharing this project with all of us in blogland.
P.S. This side view shows you that the clever part of this project is that it holds a spare Post-It pad in the back pocket.
