I took a small piece of the Sycamore Street DSP into my local office supply store to try and find coordinating Post-it notes. Have you seen how many different colored Post-it notes there are? It was crazy. It took me a while, but I finally came up with a shade of blue and a shade of red that coordinated well with the DSP. I'm glad that Stampin' Up! coordinates all of their colors so I don't have to go through the color match game every time I want to make a project!
Anyway, I took the Post-it notes and made little holders for them.
I covered the surface of a blank coaster with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and adhered the DSP in place. Once it dried (it only took a minute), I sanded the edges with a sanding block to smooth down the edges.
It's a little more difficult to see in this photo, but if you look closely at the DSP you can see small red dots at the base of the purple flowers. I was trying to highlight that color with the red Post-it notes.
I added a binder clip at the top to add decoration and to act as a pen holder. Of course I covered it in DSP too. I looked through my stash of flowers and I was thrilled to find the perfect shade of red and blue flowers to coordinate with my project. I put a large white brad through the center of the flowers and then bent the prongs around the handle of the binder clip like this.
The prongs of the brad hold it in place.
I had a lot of fun making these and I hope my children's teachers enjoy using them. Thanks for stopping by!
