Post It Pals~~

I have way to many coasters and I enjoy finding new ways to create fun things with them. Yesterday I was cruising around Angie's blog and found THESE ! As you can see I had way to much fun making them too! They just have a stack of post it notes inside and can sit on a desk or work space nicely! Once again, I utilized my SU punches for a finishing touch. How did I ever survive with out punches? I resisted for so long, but they have been one of my best investments....This one is almost all SU! I used the DSP to line the inside as well. The stamp in the front cover is from Taggers Dozen (ret.) I blinged it up a little by adding just the tiniest rhinestone to the image there! I used my Bind It All to add the o-rings and voila! fast and easy~~(with the right tools of course!)Here is the inside view. Of course I used blue post its to match! I also used my SU sanding blocks to smooth the edges after I adhered the DSP to the coaster. If you do not own a Bind It All, you can also make this with a couple of the "rings" that can be purchased in the office supply section just about anywhere, and your Crop-A-Dile. Be sure to tie on a couple ribbons to finish it off!
Here's Shelli's "wisdom" for the day.....The secret to a happy stamper is to have everything you need to complete a project! Translation, buy it, because some day you will find a use for it and therefore will not have to run to the store or wait for UPS in the middle of a project! Wise huh? Yeah, I'm deep....real deep!
