Altered Photo Holder to be a Post-It Note Holder

hi there, this post was ready to go for a while now - has already been posted over on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team's blog.

Products used:

HCPC3325 Daisy Patch Bouquet PreCut Set
HCPC3318 Daisy Patch Flowers PreCut Set
HCPC3314 Elegant Single Leaves PreCut Set
HCPC3321 Believe PreCut Set
HCD703 Daisy Patch Die Cuts
HCD704 Perfect Petals Die Cuts
Clear Adhesive

Using a 4 x 6 clear plastic photo holder cut stash piece of designer paper 4 x 6.

Stamped Daisy Patch Bouquet's large image using Memento's Danube Blue onto side of designer paper and slid into photo slot. The flowers will be glued onto the plastic using the stamped image for flower/leaf placement.
Using three sizes of daisies from the Daisy Patch Flowers set, stamped each several times using Memento's Danube Blue. Colored all daisies with Copic B12 and B24 before using the Daisy Die Cuts.
Using the two smallest leaves from the Elegant Single Leaves set, stamped six using Memento's Bamboo Leaves and colored with Copic YG95 and YG99 before using the Perfect Petals Die Cuts.
Using clear adhesive - applied drops to the plastic above the leave images and adhered the leaves.

Adhered smaller flowers to the centers of four of the flowers and added yellow buttons, glued small yellow dots to two of the center of the flowers. Applied clear adhesive to the plastic above the flower images and applied the smaller flowers first. The large center flower is raised with double-stacked adhesive dots.

Stamped the sentiment using Memento's Potters Clay onto white cs, cut with decorative scissors and sponged edges with Danube Blue. Adhered to photo holder as shown.
Added adhesive to the back of the Post It Note pad and adhered to the holder as shown.

these are sweet little gifts for any occasion - I find these clear photo holders at the Dollar Store....

have a blessed day,
