Painted Autumn Post it Note Holder Tutorial

Last month I shared with you a cute little post it note holder that my friend Cindy made. You can see more about that HERE. They were so cute I wanted to make some of my own and here is what I came up with.

I love this Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper – the patterns are just lovely and I thought the small leaf pattern was just perfect for this project. What do you think?

They are fairly simple to make and a lot of fun too –  So today I thought I’d show you how she made them.

When a latch from your punch pops out it can be quite explosive – but no worries, there isn’t anything wrong with the punch AND you can pop that latch right back in so you can lock it once again for storage.

I filmed this tutorial a while back and it has gotten “lost” on my computer. Sigh, does that ever happen to you? Oh well, the good news is I’m sharing it with you today!
