I enjoy making little 3D items to give to friends for various occasions. This year at Christmas I did a couple of more detailed projects. One is a Stand Up Calendar / Post It Note Holder. I had received one from a friend at our last in person Stampin’ Up! Event and have had it on my desk. Every time I used it, I would think that I needed to make some of those. Finally, the time was right.
Above is a photo of the closed notepad and you can see I do have the calendar. I will say that my Christmas gifts did not have the calendar, as they were delayed in arriving. (Imagine that with the crazy mail this holiday!) So those had a stamped sentiment as the focal point.
Here is the stand up and open view.
For this version of the notepad, I used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle along with the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. The paper is part of the Sale-A-Bration Berry Blessings Bundle. They are a great match! I do love the contrast of the two different paper pieces I used.
For an added touch to the top of the notepad part, I stamped and punched a couple of strawberries. I used Cherry Cobbler ink as the outline of the strawberry with Flirty Flamingo as the inside filler. I paired the softness of the Flamingo with Granny Apple Green to keep my cheery strawberry theme going.
I have not done a video for this because when I looked, I found a couple of them. I do have the measurements and instructions for you. It is really quite simple.
- Base is 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 3 and 5 1/2
- Card stock same as base cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
- DSP is 4 X 5 1/4 (need 2 of those)
- Pen holder is 3 X 2, folded in half and secured together and then secured beneath the calendar
- Notepad cover is 3 1/8 X 4 1/8, score on 4 1/8 side at 5/8 and 1
- Calendar layers are 3 1/2 X 2 3/4 and 3 1/4 X 2 1/2 (I used Taylored Expresseions calendars, yours may be a different size)
Thank you for stopping by today. Please come back tomorrow for another new project.
