Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 4 - Post It Note Cover

I am still working away at completing my remaining nine challenges for the Marks Finest Papers, Twelve Days Of Christmas Challenges.
If you would like to learn more about these challenges, click here.

Day 4's challenge is to create a Post It note cover. I have never made a post it note cover before and decided that while I seem to be on a craft room Christmas decorating roll, I would make it match my composition book from Day 1. It also matches my Christmas ornament from one of my previous posts in the last few days.  I am very daughters tease me about it all the time.

I decided to use the Best Creations Olive green glitter card stock again. It is very sturdy and the glitter does not rub off at all! I was sure glad to find that tidbit out, as glitter makes me very itchy. With all these remaining challenges to finish, I have no time to be

I had to mount the vellum quote on some white cardstock first and then cut it down as the quote was too big for my post it note holder as is. I then matted the trimmed down quote with the same glitter paper in red, and then glued it down onto the cover. I used Sook Wang tape again as this cover will take a lot of daily use...I do not want it to start peeling off. The Sook Wang grabs the glitter paper nicely!

I added one last set of the teensy leaves from the  MFP Holly Jolly stamp set. Have to have it match everything else...right???

The glitter paper which matched my other projects,  did not crimp well. I was able to create my own pattern  to fit two stacked post it note sets by cutting my cover to overlap my post it note set by 1/4 inch and doubling that to create the length. Two scored lines 1/2 inch apart created the spine and a strip of Sook Wang holds the spine onto the notes. I ran a line of Sook Wang to affix the cover to the bottom of the stack.

Cover base - Best Creations Olive Green glitter card stock
Sentiment - Anna Griffins self adhesive Vellum quote stickers
Card stock - Best Creations red glitter paper for the sentiment mat
Stamp - Marks Finest Papers Holly Jolly Christmas

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

1. Marks Finest Papers Twelve Days Of Christmas - Day 4 - Post It Note Cover
