Butterfly Post It Notes

I just LOVE my Big Shot! It does the greatest things! Well, I helped it a little bit, but it saves SO much time. I made all these Post It Notes in about 2 hours. Can you imagine if we still had to hand cut all these things?







Separate a 3x3 Post It Note pad into 4 sections. Lay them one at a time onto the butterfly die-cut and roll them through.

Cut the coordinating colors of cardstock and Vellum cardstock with the die-cut. Some of the layers of butterflies I put through the embossing folder also. Stack them up, add rhinestones to the center and assemble with a small binder ring. Viola! Cute little convention gifts in only 2 hours! *Ü*

  2. These are so cool! Do you have a large butterly in back supporting the notes? (I can't quite tell from the pic.) Hope you don't mind if I try this myself! Love them!

  20. Becky, I completely fell in love with these when I saw them, they're fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing.

    I made my first one this afternoon and can see I'll be making many more!

    I too had the problem of losing a bit of the wing if I used a 3" x 3" pad. I used a 5" x 3" pad and cut a tad over 1 1/2" off the side and so now I have some mini Post It note pads to work with too!

  21. Oh Ruth! That's a great idea! I'm not going to need to buy those post it "flags" any more! Thanks for that idea!

  22. My post it notes doesnt seem to be big enough or wide enough and then It hard to cut thru with only a few . ANYTIPS did you run into any of these problems>>??

  23. Hi everyone, thank you for leaving great comments! I've heard from a few of you that you have had trouble getting your die-cut to fit on the Post-It notes. I did also. I found that the Post It brand didn't fit but the generic Post It notes from Staples did fit. I used them all anyway and scooted the die-dut over a bit so that if the tip of the wing did get cut off, it was under the binger ring and you couldn't see it. :)
