Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - DT Piece

Another weekend and another challenge over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This weeks theme is Hearts and has been set by the talented Mandy. I've created another Post It Note Folder, these are so easy to make and the skies the limit as to how you can decorate them. My daughter's school friend had a birthday this week and she forget to get her a present. She asked if I had anything I could give, the only thing I could think if was the other folder I made. She liked it but I said I'd make another which was more suitable for a 14yr old. Excuse the poor piccie, I had to take this late at night as it was off on its travels first thing. The paper is from "ChatterBox". I prefer a thicker paper or thinner cardstock but this worked, just a bit more delicate. The paper is doublesided so I used the reverse to stamp the Panda directly onto. He's a newbie from "Prima". I dotted liquid pearls all over the cover and edged with a black galaxy marker, added the heart and flowers and then attached the post its when it was all dry. Here are the instructions again on how to make one of these. Just a few score lines, simple as that

Cut a Piece of double sided paper to 3 1/4 x 7 1/2 inches
Score at 3 1/2 & 4 inches.
Fold on the scorelines.
It really is as easy as that!!!!

Hope you can come and join us with this weeks great challenge, the DT have some lovely examples to show.
