Resin Covered Post it Note Holder

I like to have note pads accessible at all times and I keep them everywhere, in my purse, on my night stand, etc.  It is even better when they are pretty as well as functional.  I have a great Post it Note Holder die, that makes a nice note pad from mat board, but I thought it would be more durable if I covered the mat board with EnviroTex Lite®.  

Materials List:
  • Envirotex Lite® 
  • Sizzix Post it Note Holder die
  • Sizzix Die Machine
  • Iridescents Paint, Lagoon
  • Mat Board
  • Craft brush
  • Paint brush
  • Post it Notes
  • Velcro® Brand Fastners
  • Resin piece (optional)
  • Stir sticks
  • Glue
  • Craft sheet or plastic for your work surface
  • Lighter

    Project Instructions: 

    Paint mat board with Lagoon, let dry.

     Measure out equal parts of the resin and hardener, stir for two minutes.

     Pour into a second cup and stir for another minute.

     Pour resin mixture onto mat board, use a craft brush to spread the resin, covering the mat board.  Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles that rise to the top.  Let dry for 12 hours..

     Die cut the resin covered mat board, following die cutting machine instructions.

     Fold the mad board to form the Post it Note holder.  Place Post it Notes inside the holder.

     Attach Velcro® Fastener to the holder for the closure.

    I wanted a decorative touch to the note holder, so I got out a variety of resin pieces I had already made to see what would look best.  To see how to make these resin pieces with EasyCast, check out this post.

     Glue the resin piece on as desired,

     Enjoy you note holder!

    EnviroTex Lite® is the perfect finishing touch!
