Butterfly Post It Notes

Oh my giddy aunt, I fell completely in love with these butterfly Post It notes Becky showed on her Inking Idaho blog.  So sweet, and butterfly shaped Post It notes - what's not to love?!  I found that a 3" x 3" Post It pad wasn't big enough to cut out the entire butterfly.  I used a 5" x 3" Post It note pad and cut off a tad over 1 1/2" from the side which means I have some mini Post It note pads to use as well!

Keeping the notes together, I pulled 20 sheets off the pad - you can make 5 of these from one pad if you use 20 sheets, 4 if you use 25 sheets.  I tried 25 sheets as well and the Big Shot happily die cut those in one go.  I then die cut two large butterflies from Pink Pirouette CS as front and back covers.  I glued the back Post It note sheet to one large pink butterfly and I embossed the other one with the Vintage Wallpaper folder.  I then joined the two large pink butterfly pieces together with a book ring after punching a hole with the Crop-A-Dile.  I die cut two more butterflies to decorate the front, I kept the Melon Mambo shape plain but I stamped the smaller Pink Pirouette shape with the Bella Toile stamp using Melon Mambo ink.  I fixed those to the front with glue dots and added clear rhinestones.

Here's the inside showing the butterfly shaped  Post It notes.  What a happy little project to work on!  I just need to get more book rings and I'll be all set to make more of these cuties!
