Time for tags page marker/ post it matchbooks.

Always thinking of ideas for little gifts or craft fair ideas I created these little cuties over the weekend. These are mini post it note/ page markers decorated in a fun and fast way.

Super budget friendly these use minimal supplies. I used a block of post it notes measuring approx.
3 x 3 " square. Divide them into thinner bundles say 10-15 sheets then cut them in half on the width. This way you get heaps from an inexpensive block of post it notes. I reckon you could make up to 20 from a £1.00 block.

The card casing is matchbook style and an idea which is fast to create in bulk and easy for you to change up measurements to suit whatever post it notes you use. I decorated this set of five using Stampin' Up! Time for tags, which is actually a free set you can claim on orders £150 or over as it is a hostess set you can claim using stampin' rewards... even more frugal !

The paper needed is small so a great way to use up scraps too. My love for collecting Stampin' Up! punches came in hand here as I used the Timeless label and the classic label punches. The Timeless label shape co-ordinates perfectly with the Time for tags set. I was given the stamp set AND the punch FREE by Stampin' Up! at a recent demonstrator event...another perk of being a demo is the freebies !

I did a set of five to show off our fantastic new in colours Rococo rose, Seaside Spray, Purple posy, Terracotta tile and Pretty peacock. The ink matches the paper and both these in turn match the little faceted gem embellishments used to just catch the light and add a tiny twinkle. I love co-ordination as much as I love punches.

I have a fun and fast YouTube tutorial for you to craft along to .. you can make heaps of these in no time great teacher gifts, craft fair idea... or just for fun.

Happy stamping xxx Amanda
