Desk Decoration

Hi all, me again. This time I just wanted to show something I made for my desk last week. I was recently browsing through the Teddy Bo Challenge blog, and they had a few new releases, including a bear covered in Post-It notes. Debbie Dunn on the design team showed a fab Post-It holder and I knew I just had to have the image and make my own!

Somebody asked me if it was easy to make, so I have quickly put together another just to demonstrate.

I started with one of the images from the Tabs Collections that I had already coloured.

 I trimmed the image down and matted onto some blue cardstock using 3D foam.

 I then measured a length of red card slightly wider then the image to use as my base. My Post-It pads for this project are approximately the same with as the image, so I know they will fit. 

I then folded and scored the image in half, and then half again on one section, so it looks a bit like this:

  I then secured the image to the base using double sided tape (only on the bottom half though, as the rest will be the easel) and secured the Post-It block also using double sided tape, and there you have it, one finished Post-It Holder

I am entering this into Teddy Bo - Anything Goes
