Back To School


Well, my kids have gone back to school today - at last!!! I think they are the last school to go back after the summer break, they seem to have been off forever LOL!!!

I thought it would be nice for them to take a small gift for their new teachers, so I made some Post It Note Holders. 

For the image on the front I used a lovely House Mouse Stamp - it's called Class Clown, which is perfect!!!

I stamped the image onto Copic Perfect Colouring Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Here's a close-up of one of the Post It Note Holders:

I used the following Copic Markers to colour the image:
Mouse: E31, E33, E35, E000, E00
Pencil: Y15, Y38, Y28, RV32 RV34
Eraser: RV32 RV34
Paper Clip: G07

Other Items Used:

Nesties Large Squares and Large Scalloped Squares with Sizzix Big Shot
Square Post It Notes

I'm entering these into the following challenges:

Addicted To Stamps - Anything but a card
Simon Says Stamp - Multiple Folders (each Post It Note Holder has two folds)
Divas by Design - Back to School

These Post It Notes Holders are cheap to make and perfect for using up your scraps.
If you would like me to show you how I made them, please either leave a comment or email me and I'll make a short video. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
