Post It Note Covers and Stampin Up Echoes of Kindness

Hi Friends!! I bought a bunch of dollar decorative post-it notes at Michaels. . .wow, a long time ago. I bought them with the purpose of creating covers for them but never got around to doing it. As I was going through a basket of craft stuff, I came across them and rather than just looking at them thinking I'll do something with them one day, I decided to finally work on creating the covers for them.

I was going to create a tutorial but I realized that the post-notes aren't the standard size post-it notes. They are a little bigger so I'll work on a tutorial on the standard sizes instead.
The covers open up reveal the decorative post-it notes. I used the colors of the flowers to create the cover. I actually have more of these post-it notes but decided to post these two that I already made. I'm going to do something different with the others.

Do you see the images on the covers? Well, they're from the Stampin Up "Echoes of Kindness" Set. I bought the set I think 6 months ago and have never gotten around to using them. What's new, right? LOL! This time, rather than coloring with my Copic Markers, I decided to watercolor the images instead. I haven't watercolored for a long time. Do you see the white highlights? Well, I used white acrylic paint to create the highlights on the image. Acrylic paint works nicely to create highlights on your images. Try it out. . .:)

Anyway. .. that's it for today. I hope you all have a beautiful glorious Sunday!!
