G'day, Yes I have been MIA(Missing In Action). Taking some time out to start on the house declutter and organising. I have decided to do my blogging at night. Hopefully, this way I can be here a bit more regularly.
Here is my share for today, A Post-It Note handbag. I designed this myself. The idea came from seeing two different creations. One was for a post-it note handbag with a rectangular front and back. It had the post-it note glued in by the spine to the middle. I saw it and thought what a wonderful idea. Then, I saw another creation that used the handbag shaped, and had the flap with a ribbon handle at the top. This one was a card with a pouch for a gift voucher. Again, I thought terrific idea.
My imagination started to fire and I combined the two ideas into my creation. And, this was what I made for my family, and a girlfriend, for Christmas pressies.
I made the first one, and was using it as a pattern. It started to get a little ratty, I said to Mum that I wasn't going to use it as a gift. She asked why and I told her because it was a bit ratty. She said don't be silly I'll have that one. So, I gave it to her and she absolutely loved it. She wanted to learn how to make one, for a penfriend of hers. So, I helped her to make this one.
Here is the Front, the one thing we did differently on this, is the tag. I just love it, and wish I had thought of it for the Chrissie pressies as well.
This is the inside. I designed the box, for the post-its, so you can replace them when they are finished. A small piece of ribbon holds the pen in place, and you just slide it out when you need it. Easy, peasy!
I used this small piece of scrap designer paper, to stick onto the top of the post-it note stack. When you remove a note it leaves a sticky residue, you just place the scrap on the sticky and, presto, a cute topper for the stack.
Well, that's it me for today. Hope you are having a great week. Fingers crossed I will be here more often.
Thanks for popping by and happy creating.
