Coaster Post-It Note Tutorial

June post it note holder 

This is a cute little post-it note holder which uses 4" x 4" coasters to create the front and back cover.  I saw the idea on Splitcoast stampers, but couldn’t find a tutorial, so I blundered through it, taking pictures all the while, in the hopes that if it turned out, I’d have a tutorial to post for you.  So, here it is! Supplies: – two 4" x 4" coasters – two sheets of 6" x 6" designer paper – a sheet of cardstock cut at 7-15/16" by 3-3/4" – craft ink to match the designer paper – sticky tape.

Step 1:  Score both your sheets of  designer paper at 1" on all four sides

Step 2: Fold along all the score lines, then cut out the corners as shown above

Step 3: Working at each of the corners, fold in each flap so that it is flush with the score line as shown in the picture above

Step 5: Cut off all of the little corner flaps that you folded using your paper trimmer.Post it pic 5 

Step 6: This is what your designer paper should look like after all the corners have been cut off. Post it pic 6

Step 7:  Ink up the corners of each coaster using the craft ink

Step 10: Take your cardstock piece and score at 3-13/16", flip to the other side and do the same (basically on both sides you are scoring from the outer edge in). Fold along the score lines.
