Neon Trees Post-It Note Holder

Step 1:  Cut a strip of white cardstock 3 ¼ x 8 inches.  Score at the ½”, 1”, 4 ¼”, and 4 ¾” marks.

Step 2:  Fold along scored lines.  Use a bone folder to create strong creases.

Step 3:  Trim a rectangle of white cardstock to 3” x 2 ¾”.  Stamp the snowflake stamp in a light blue chalk ink.

Step 4:  Stamp the larger tree with VersaMark ink,  heat emboss with neon green embossing powder.  Stamp the smaller trees in neon pink.  Mount on a black cardstock mat.

Step 5:  Adhere ribbon strips to the narrow panels on the holder.  Adhere the black matted panel to the front of the holder.

Step 6:  Heat emboss three wood veneer stars yellow.  Adhere to the tops of the trees.  Create a ribbon bow and attach to the top of the holder.  Adhere post-it note inside holder.

I love creating these fun little post-it holders!  They make fabulous stocking stuffers, too!  Thanks for visiting today!  Have fun creating!
