Beer Mats and Bargains!!

If you ever needed an excuse to go to the Pub this is it!!!

These post it note holders are so easy to make and I think they make lovely gifts, so I have been busy making them for some of my crafting friends.

You will need 2 beer mats, 1 sheet of PP, 1 sheet of card stock and a packet of post it notes.
Cut 2 covers 2 cm larger than the beer mats from the PP
Cut 2 inside covers slightly smaller than the mats from heavy weight PP or card stock
Cut a 6 by 12 cm strip of card stock

*Simply cover 2 beer mats with thin patterned paper then cover with lace or ribbon
*Attach a 6cm wide strip of thick card stock between the mats, leaving a 2-3cm gap between them both.
* Glue the inside covers in place and stick on a pack of post it notes!!
* Decorate to suit.

Can you believe I bought all of this for £10 The plastic 12x12 holders were 4 for one pound as were the sticker files. The crop case was £1 and the box files £3. The 8x8 was also just a £1!!!!

What a bargain!! It sure made my day, now I will no excuse for not being organised!!!

Have a great weekend. xxx

WOW what bargains and no, you will not have an excuse to be disorganised but it you're anything like me, you don't need an excuse.

OMG! I LOVE this idea! This is what you were talking about when you commented on my flip flop coasters! I wasn't sure what you were talking about--but now I do :o] I'm not sure of the cost becuase I use dollars here...
You are SO talented. I love looking at your work!
