TNT Thursday


Today's TNT Thursday will not only include a Post-a-Note holder, but a few instructions on how to make the packaging to put it in.


Here are the pieces to put together the holder and the package.

The holder measures 
3 1/4" x  71/2"
Scored at 3 1/2" and 4"

 


The top panels are

2 1/2"x 2 3/4"
and
2 1/2" x 2 1/4"



Decorate the smaller front panel. I used Mosaic Madness 
with the coordinating punch and added several Basic Rhinestone Jewels on mine.


Apply Sticky Tape to the back of one package of notes and adhere to the
 inside back close to the scored line as shown below.
** It actually can be adhered even closer then what is shown here.



Next work on the packaging. I used a Stampin'Up! 4" X  6" Cellophane Bag.
I cut a strip of solid CS 4 1/4" X 2" and scored it in half. I then applied a 3/4" X  4" piece of matching DSP and centered it on the CS strip.

I folded the cello bag over about 1/2" and stapled it closed

I then I used 2 pieces of Double-Sided Tape to adhere the strip to the top of the bag. * I used a smaller piece of tape for the front so it can be opened easily.
 


I punched a small tag from the A Round Array stamp set and a coordinating solid CS circle , layered them and punched a small hole for the Bakers Twine. I also ran a piece of twine around the closure and tied it in a double bow.


I hope you will give this a try. They can be as simple or as "fancy" as you want and would make really nice gifts for workmates, teachers, friends , etc.


Have a great day and stay CRAFTY!
