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.

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!


Thanks for the "tute" Eva. These would surely make nice gifts, favors, etc.

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as
