Outside the Box!!!

This is the present I made for Mum for Mother's day. 
I found a heart shaped post-it note block in my local supermarket.  This is the idea that popped into my head when I saw it. 
I used a heart shaped Fiskars hard plastic template to cut out the hearts for the base and top.  Added the yellow cardstock around the outside of the base and lid.  Then lined the base and lid with the designer paper.

I layered up the flowers and added a loop of ribbon for the pen.  I designed the base to be lower than the post-its so that you can just take the lid off to use it.  As it gets lower you can take it out to use.  When this lot is gone Mum can buy another one to replace it.

Gotta love that thinking, Outside the Box!

Hope you enjoy, leave me a comment.
Thanks for popping by and happy creating!!!

Cheers, Deb
