Post it Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to the Post-it Blog Hop!! If you just happened to stop by my blog and would like to start from the beggining click here.
We would love to share a few projects and ideas highlighting Post-It Craft paper, our newest sponsor for Thankful Thursdays with you!  Make sure to check out each member's blog. There will be some fun prizes along the way, AND there will be some AWESOME ideas!

Ok so for my Project today I made a cute little treat box I am working on two more to give to the kids teachers for Easter :).

I used an empty box I had and cut it down to the size I wanted (here is the box before I put the paper on it)
 it then modge podged the paper onto it for the background. I cut the girl eggs and wagon and grass out of post it  paper! I punched holes on the sides and attached the ribbon for a handle and there you go a little treat box!

I gotta tell you I LOVE this paper it cuts beautifully on the cricut! It is so easy to layer and I love that I dont have to pull out my glue for those little pieces!

Materials used:
  • Playtime Cartridge (for girl)
  • Sugar and Spice Cartridge (for Wagon)
  • Smiley Cards (for eggs)
  • Peachy Keen Wide eyed kids face assortment
  • Sakura white gelly roll pen for all the stitching
  • empty box
  • modge podge
  • hole punch
  • Ribbon
What is a blog hop with out some blog candy! Today I will be giving away a pack of Post- it Craft paper for you to try for your self!

How adorable!!!! You did such an amazing job! I would love the 'Jewels' paper. I really want to try it as home decor. We live in a rental home and I worry about vinyl because I know it can be hard to take off (and is a little harder to work with). Thanks so much for the chance!! :)
