Second Fiskarettes DT project

My second Fiskarettes DT project has now been uploaded onto Fiskarettes UK Facebook page so I can now put it on my blog.  I made some Post-It Note holders using acrylic frames and snippets of plain card.  I've made a few before, but this time I decided to use a Fiskars border punch and layer the punch strips.
The Post-it Notes stick directly onto the acrylic frame, no extra glue needed, so are easily replaced.

 I cut a piece of card 6" x 4" and layered the strips on top, before putting into the acrylic frame.

 This photo shows a side view.

 I made the flowers to match the Post-It Notes.  I didn't have the right shade of pink so....

..... I coloured a snippet of white card with a Promarker, then punched out the flowers.  I'm not sure why I've never thought to do this before!

I also made one in purple and white and embellished it with silver Card Candi.

Please pop over to the Fiskarettes UK Facebook page to see what the other DT members have created this week.

I would like to enter my Post-It Note holder into the following challenges:

Great project Liz, these little post-it note holders would be fabulous as thank you gifts or as items to sell at the school fete. I love how you've matched the pretty flowers to the notes... great idea to colour your own card stock.
Cheers,
