Sugar Rush Post-it-Note & Pencil Holder

This weekend my monthly workshop was scheduled however, I have one horrible cold & soar throat crud.  This is what we were going to make at the workshop--Sugar Rush Post-It Note & Pencil Holder with calendar.  I found a place online which prints calendars here.  I selected the yearly calendar that printed the calendars in landscape mode and it fit perfectly for this little box!  First is the front side of the holder:

With my containers, I actually used some textured cardstock that was long ago retired.  I like it because it is a heavier cardstock and I thought it would stand up a little better than regular cardstock. You can find an instructional video from Libby Stampz, an Australian stamper here.  Here are the quick instructions:

1.  Notepad Holder:  Cut a 7-1/4" x 7-1/4" piece of cardstock and score all sides at 2" and cut on the green lines.

2.  Cut three pieces of decorative paper at 3-1/8" x 1-7/8" (that will go on 3 showing sides of the notepad holder).  On the side of the box that will face the front, you will use a 1-3/8" circle punch to punch out a half circle (see finished picture).

3.  Pencil Box:  Cut an 8-1/4" x 8-1/4" piece of cardstock.  Score one set of opposite sides (see below) at 3-1/4" and the other set of opposite sides at 2-1/2".  Cut on the green lines.  Trim off excesses (yellow areas) as shown:

4.  Cut two pieces of decorative paper at 3-1/8" x 1-5/8".  Adhere to sides of pencil holder.
     Cut one piece of decorative paper at 3-1/8" x 3-1/8".  Adhere to front of pencil holder.

5.  Back Piece:  Cut a piece of cardstock 3-1/4" x 5-1/2".
      Cut 2 pieces of matching cardstock (one for front & back) at 3-1/8" x 5-3/8".
      Cut one layer decorative paper (for front) at 3" x 5-1/4".  Stamp and embellish.
This project was great fun and pretty easy to make!  Enjoy!
