Sticky Note Holder & Gift Box
By Diane Zechman

Adapted from tutorial by Bridgett Owens

Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape
Paper cutter
3” Sticky Note pad
papers, ribbon, etc. to embellish
stamps and ink, if desired (Sweet ‘n Sassy- Winter Girls used here)
Note Holder:
2 pieces of 3 ½” x 3 ½” chipboard
1 piece of 3 ¼” x 6 ¾” cardstock or heavy patterned paper
2 pieces of 4 ½” x 4 ½” patterned paper
Gift Box:
1 piece of 4 ¾” x 10 ¼” cardstock

Sticky Note Holder
Step 1: Align the 3 ¼” x 6 ¾” cardstock along the left fence and score the 6 ¾” side @ 3 ¼” and 3 ½”. Fold and crease scored lines. Set aside.

Step 2: Apply Scor-Tape to one side of each of the chipboard pieces. Center each chipboard square onto the back side of the 4 ½” patterned paper. Miter the corners and secure the sides down with additional Scor-Tape.

Step 3: Apply Scor-Tape to one side of your cardstock up to the first score line and center it onto one chipboard square. Repeat this process for the other chipboard cover.

Step 4: Adhere sticky note pad to the inside and decorate as desired.

Gift Box
Step 5: Align cardstock along the left fence and score the 10 ¼” side @ 1/2” and 9”.

Step 6: Slide the cardstock over so the left side is at the 1/8” mark. Score @ 4 ¼” and 5 ½”.

Step 7: Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score @ 3”.

Step 8: Using scissors, cut the vertical score lines up to the horizontal score line. Remove the small rectangular section at the bottom left. Then trim the 2 largest flaps to 1 ¼” wide. This will create the box bottom. You will now have four flaps.

Step 9: Fold and crease all scored lines. Adhere patterned paper layers to the front side, if desired.

Step 10: Turn the paper over. Fold both sides in, adhering together with Scor-Tape to form the box.

Step 11: Fold bottom flaps in one at a time, applying Scor-Tape to adhere the flaps shut.

Step 12: Decorate as desired. The gift box will hold 1 or 2 Sticky Note Holders.
