Pencil Pot and sticky note holder


Today I have a gift idea for the men in your life that work at a desk, at least some of the time. This might be a good Father’s Day or Teacher gift…

I used a tutorial from Pootles as my inspiration for this project. It just happened to appear in my feed on Pinterest and I thought it would work well as a masculine project too. Here’s the tutorial for the Pootles version:

I didn’t want to add ribbon and I thought it would be useful to include some sticky notes in the project so I simply added a little box to the front.

I used Blueberry Bushel card and some of the Best Route designer series paper for both parts of this project.

As with the original version, I used card measuring 11 x 5 & 1/2 inches and scored on the long side at 4 inches and 5 & 1/2 inches. On the short side I scored at 1 & 1/2 inches and at 4 inches. I actually added 2 layers of designer series paper to the front, the first one measuring 2 & 1/4 inches by 3 & 3/4 inches and the second one measuring 2 x 3 & 1/2 inches.

For the sticky note holder I used card measuring 5 & 3/4 inches by 2 & 1/4 inches. I scored on the long side at 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 3 & 1/8 inches and 3 & 5/8 inches. Here’s your cutting guide for this part…

The sentiment is a sneaky peek at a new stamp set available from 4th June 2019 called A Good Man. I stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink onto Whisper White card and cut it with my Layering Circles dies. I also cut a scalloped circle in Blueberry Bushel card and a larger one from vellum. I glued all 3 together and then added them to the front of the sticky note holder with a Stampin’ Dimensional.

This will take plenty of pens, pencils etc and hopefully will be a really useful gift.

Happy crafting,
