Post-It Note Booklets

Post-It Note Booklets

I have been busy making dozens of different styles of Post-It Note Booklets for upcoming holiday craft fairs. I have 3 styles of booklets to show you today.

Post-It Note Booklets

These small booklets are easy to put together with scrap pieces of cardstock, simple embellishments, a post-it note pad, and a mini gel pen.

Post-It Note Booklets

Small “holders” for the pen were built into the design.

Post-It Note Booklets

I used patterned paper on the front and back of these books, which allowed the pattern to stand out and eliminated the need for heavy embellishing.

Post-It Note Booklets

This is a picture of the inside… you can see a small piece of ribbon, threaded through eyelets, and the post-it pad.

Post-It Note Booklets

Here is the pen out of its holder. This 2-pieces gift would make a cute stocking stuffer, teacher gift, etc.

Sweet Thanksgiving Treats

If you have been following my blog, you’ll know that it’s craft fair season and that I’ve been posting various projects destined for the fairs. Today I have some deja vu projects… you have seen me post similar projects with a Halloween theme, but this time, we are on to Fall / Thanksgiving!

These Hershey Nugget tins are so fun to make and customize for any season. Each tin holds 12 nuggets, decorated with fall-themed patterned papers. Since I like to use up my retired CTMH stock for craft fairs, almost all of the papers and supplies are retired.

However, this adorable stamp set, called Sweet Salutations, is current from CTMH.

These treat bags hold 11 peanut M&M candies, and are topped with fall leaves and ribbons.

I have a few ready to go!

Here is the smaller version of the Hershey Nugget treats. These packets hold only 4 nuggets in a fall-themed package.

A little bit of stamping on the header cards, completes the theme!

Fall Leaf Pillow Box

ctmh fall pillow box

Today I have a super easy project for you! I used my Cricut machine and the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to mass cut several pillow box shapes for my upcoming craft fair. If you don’t have that cartridge, you could probably find a template for a simple pillow box online.

Using Kraft cardstock, I cut the boxes at a 4″ height, which made them quite small when folded over. Before cutting, I found an image of a leaf that I liked from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge. I simply placed the leaf image in the center of the pillow box front and welded them together. That way, when the pillow box was cut, the leaf image was cut out with it.

I glued a small, clear bag to the inside front of the box (covering the leaf opening) before assembly. Then I assembled the box, and used the cut out leaf as my tag. The leaf was sponged around the edges with Desert Sand Ink and the sentiment was stamped in Cocoa Ink.

Before closing the final flap of the box, I filled the small baggie with M&Ms and stapled it shut.

The tag was attached with some gorgeous fall-colored string that I had from my retired CTMH stash. A craft fair is a great way to use up older products!

I will be linking this project to the following challenges:
