Last-minute Post-it Note Gift

It was my last day at work today (for the five week summer break) and I had planned to make small gifts for the teachers I work with but I have been flat out with family commitments and work and it hadn't happened! Last night my husband and I were out until midnight and then I whipped up these post-it note holders.
My friend Alison has a tutorial on YouTube at this link stampwithali, and once you've made a couple, they're a piece of cake. The pens are available at Officeworks (Australia) for a reasonable price, the post-it notes are a bit more expensive at Officeworks, but what gorgeous colours!!!


I used Stampin' Up! card colors Pool Party, Pacific Point, Wisteria, Pear Pizzazz, Melon Mambo and Strawberry Slush.I can't even pick my favourite colour, they all look lovely.

A variety of stamp sets including Oh Hello, Happy Day, Regarding Dahlias,Simply Stars were used to decorate the covers, stamped straight on as I was so short of time, but Ali did a much nicer job of the finishing off. Mine were well-received, even by the male teacher, so I was happy with that.

With Christmas looming, I hope you have all your preparations under control!
Cheers
Rachel
