I must confess, I'm addicted to stationary. Yes, it's true. I am not sure what it is, but give me cute sticky notes and pretty pencils and I am a happy gal! So when Doodlebug launched the new School Days collection, I squealed - yup, just like a pig in mud! Because the only thing better than sticky notes is sticky notes wrapped up in Doodlebug goodness! So I decided to whip up a couple of welcome back treats for my teaching colleagues. Designed to hold 3x3 sticky notes, these little holders feature the 6X6 paper collection together with stamps from the School Boy and School Girl Doodle stamps. To create the layered look of the stamped images, I simply did some masking, starting by stamping the image in the front (the pencil) and working backwards. The great part of masking is that you can create your own little scene that fits perfectly into the space you have on a project!
If the idea of masking is intimidating for you though, you can create the same look by stamping the images and then using the Doodle Cuts to cut out the ones you want to appear in the front (the easel and the apple). Use some foam adhesive to attach them and get some added dimension! And while you might not having teaching colleagues to welcome back, these would make great teacher appreciation gifts or even gifts for students. Write a personal little note on the top sticky note... ...and then close it up and sneak it inside a suitcase or care package for that college student you have in your life! Because quite frankly, with all that layered Doodlebug goodness, they are just as cute all closed up as they are open!
So there you have it - two of my favourite things all together in one cute project! I might actually have to go and make one for my own desk too! Now why didn't I think of that sooner?
Thanks for stopping by!
