I had so many ideas I was thinking about to share with you for the February Project Pea Blog Hop. I knew I wanted to use the SugarPea's Tin Can Chat stamp set so I decided to create an easel Post-it holder with a matching beaded pen. Do you remember when beaded pens were all the rage in the stamping community? I still have supplies for them, so I pulled out some mini pens, the micro-beads and adhesive sheets. I am planning to give this to my second grade granddaughter, so the pen was a no-brainer!
You'll need to start with a heavy weight card stock for the easel and the notepad holder. I used Gina K's 120 lb. and it was super-sturdy.
To make the easel, cut your card stock 10.5" x 4.5" and then score at 5", 5.5" & 8.
|Here's what the easel looks like folded.|
To make the notepad holder, cut your card stock 4 1/8" x 4 1/8".
Score each side at 1/2". Cut on one of the score lines for each corner to create a folded tab for when you construct the box.
Add your patterned papers to the easel base and 3 of the box sides. I cut 1 pieces of green card stock 4 7/8" x 4 3/8" the patterned paper is 4 3/4" x 4 1/4". For the box sides, I cur three pieces of green card stock 3" x 3/8" and 3 pieces of pattered paper slightly smaller - about 2 7/8" x 1/4".
Scrapbook Adhesives Adhesive Sheets
Staples Mini Gel Pens
To make the pen:
Measure the barrel section to be covered. For my mini pen (from Staples), I used a piece of patterned paper 2" x 1 1/4". The paper was adhered to the pen with ScoreTape, and then I rolled a 2" x 1 1/2" section of double-sided adhesive sheet over the paper on the barrel.
After pulling off outside layer of protective paper, it's time to roll the pen in the micro-beads. My micro beads are stored in an old SU clamshell box.

This is my final post as a member of Sugar Pea Designs ProjectPea Team. I have enjoyed my time as a part of the Sugar Pea team. I've made new friends, grown in my skills, and been challenged in new ways. I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity, for Wendy Ramlakhan's generosity, and her faith in me. It has been a pleasure to a part of the talent group of women I hope to be back occasionally for special events. Please keep in touch!
