Post-It Note Holders - Mark's Finest Papers 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop

Speedy the Cat at Mark's Finest Papers likes to get a head start on special Christmas gifts and memories for friends and family. He gathered the design team at Mark's Finest Papers to bring you 12 days of exciting paper crafting gift ideas to get that holiday mojo flowing. The hop runs for 12 consecutive days, starting October 17th! Begin your holiday hop at Speedy's home base, the Mark's Finest Papers blog and relax with a cup of eggnog (or sprig of catnip, your choice) as Speedy leads you though a short, daily hop. You'll find your holiday paper crafting ideas and supplies at Mark's Finest Papers.

Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We have four samples each day for our hop! Please visit each of the following blogs for holiday inspiration! Joanne Faith Debbie M Pam   Today we are featuring Post-It Note Holders.

For my project, I pulled out a couple of cardboad coasters, like the ones found in resturaunts, and covered them with some Me And My Big Ideas Christmas designer paper.  Once that was done, I pulled out my Mark's Finest Papers Christmas In The Country stamp set and stamped my image in memento tuxedo black ink onto MFP Corn Husk card stock before pulling out some prismacolor watercolor pencils and a blender pen and got to coloring; blending the colors as needed.  Once my watercoloring was done, I layered the image onto some scrap card stock before layering again onto the MAMBI Christmas paper and adding some white snowflake brads.  For the final touches, I added some ice stickles to highlight the sky, snow, and church as well as some ribbon on the key rings I found at Walmart.

Post-it note holders are fun, inexpensive gifts for the office, school or stocking stuffers and can be altered for any occasion including birthdays.  There's no reason not to have a few extras lying around for a last minute gift, and if put into a clear cellophane gift bag, or wrapper, with a matching pen and candy; you've just stepped up the gift an extra notch. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  I hope you've enjoyed the Mark's Finest Papers 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop.  We would love to see any Christmas, birthday, or anyday presents/creations you make.  Just upload them to SpeedyTV.
