VC Rocks Non-card Blog Hop

Hello!  So glad you hopped over to me from Tania's Blog.  
If you want to start from the beginning, you can go to VC Rocks Blog.

The two items I want to share with you today are shaped keyring post it notes and monogram notes in a box.

These keyring post it notes are handy whether it is hanging on your purse or near your phone.
I used Stampin' Up's Perfect Plum, Concord Grape (ret) and cardstock vellum for these since the post it notes were purple.  I had them in several other colors, which I must have given away.
When using the Butterflies die, I cut out several pieces at a time.  For the notes I just pulled off enough from the post it stack to make the thickness of 3 or 4 pieces of cardstock.  At the back I added one cardstock butterfly.  Then I used my crop-a-dile to punch through the layers, adding the ring and finishing off with ribbon and rhinestones.  I adhered my cardstock butterflies to the front only in the middle to give my wings movement.

Here's a close up:

 And using my Fun Flowers die, here are my flower ones:

I decorated the front and the back with Tempting Turquoise cardstock, Summer Smooches DSP, brads and ribbons.  Notice that it is not necessary to use a ring;  just the ribbon looks great too!

This monogram note box is for my VC Roomie, Mary!  
(Don't look, Mary, if you want to be surprised)

The instructions to make this box are at Splitcoast Stampers.
Stamps used are Broadsheet Alphabet and Everything Eleanor.  Images are stamped in Primrose Petals onto just plain old copy paper cut down to size.
I also stamped on the outside of the box:

The piece of Primrose ribbon is adhered to the inside box bottom.  The button on top makes it easy to pull out a slip of paper when needed.

Just a preview of what is to come next week:

I finally learned how to (properly) use my Bind-it-all and made these great mini-scrapbooks.  I love embellishing them with Stampin' Up's Designer Series Papers and ribbons!
It's so much fun!

Speaking of fun, there is more at  Shirley's Blog.
Thanks for hopping!

  4. I love Butterflies and your key rings are oh so cute and adorable, and you made them with my favorite color Purple. Your flower ones are bright and cheery. Can't wait to see next weeks projects. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Very nice projects. Loved the key ring post-it notes. TFS!

  7. These are just darling. I could imagine giving these to people at work for Christmas. I would only need to make about 30 and from your description it doesn't take long.

  8. Oh I need to make a few of these.. so cute

  9. Cute! I've looked through all my post-it notes and even online and couldn't find any small enough to place in the flowers. I cut my 1 1/2"X 2" notes in half and it looks skimpy. Love the idea, don't know how to do it with post-it notes. Your pictures look like you used colored paper. They are adorable!
