Post-it Easel Card Tutorial

Hi!  Someone had suggested a tutorial for the post-it easel cards I have been making in a couple of my past posts.  So here it is!  These easel cards feature the adorable, lovable TGF Beans!!

Let's get started cause there are a lot of photos!

I made a couple of them!  I know, they are bright!  But I love them bright and cheery!  Glisten Bean is on the left in purple and Shiny Bean is on the right in pink.

Supplies:
11 x 5.25 inch cardstock
5.25 x 5.25 inch cardstock (front of your easel card that you can decorate)
4 x 4 inch cardstock (box for Post-it pad)
3 x 3 inch Post-it note pad
your favorite stamp
pens, velcro (optional)

Score your long cardstock at 5.25 inches, 5.75 inches and 8.25 inches.

After you fold them at the score lines, it should look like this.  Place on the side.

Next, get your 4 x 4 inch piece and score a half inch on all sides.  Then punch a little semi circle on one of the sides.

Fold, then cut the little corners to make into a box.

It should look like this.  Fit your Post-it pad into it.  It will be snug.

When you lay out all the pieces together, it should generally look like this.

When you start decorating your card and are ready to glue/tape the front on, be sure that you only tape/glue that half of the long cardstock!  See above photo.  Lots of times I get so involved and excited about the final project I forget and just tape on the whole front and then can't fold open the easel card!

When it's all decorated, it folds nicely like so.  The finished size when the card is closed is 5.25 x 5.25 inches.  You can play around with the dimensions and adjust things accordingly.  It doesn't have to be this size.

I added a matching gel pen to each card.  I found these packs of gel pens at Walmart for 75 cents!  I added a bit of velcro on the card and around the pen.





 
Thanks for reading!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

This is the back of the polar bears.

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
