It's time again for the monthly Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop! And this month I was asked to join in again! *smile* You should be arriving here from Jean's blog. (Although I'm not so sure I like following such an incredible and creative crafter!!!) If you got lost along the way, you can always start at the beginning of the hop, by just clicking on the banner above!
As I'm already working feverishly to prepare for a craft fair next month, I thought, why not combine the two?? Make things for the fair, AND have some things to share for the hop!! Win/Win! Feel free to click on any photo to enlarge it. So without further ado...

Post-It Note HolderMichelle LeBreton, I wanted to scale it down to fit on the front of this project. I opted to not put on the ribbon like she did, as this project works best if it remains as flat on the front as possible. For a video on making this holder, you can watch a video HERE.
Instructions: I cut the white panel 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". Punch out two blue squares and place near the bottom of the white panel. Make the roman blind by cutting the DSP in a long 2 1/4" strip. I scored it at 1/2", then 1/8", repeat until it's long enough, approx 4 times. Cut a strip of coordinating card stock and punch with the scalloped border punch; attach at the bottom of the DSP panel. I used sticky strip to attach the DSP panel to the window panel. Then punch out flowers and arrange along the bottom edge. Add rhinestones as desired.
