Small Post-it Note Tutorial using the Owl Builder Punch

Happy Birthday Owl Post-it Note Pad
I am so thankful to Susan for posting her tutorial for this same post-it note pad.  Check out here blog here if you'd like to see her original post.  I tweaked it a bit and took a few more pictures to show you "how to" do it yourself!  
Do you love this owl as much as I do?  I know, you have seen a lot of him lately.  I didn't really like him at first but he's really been growing on me... he has so many uses!  Anyway, to make this post-it pad, you need to go to Staples (or any office supply store) and get 1 3/8" x 1 7/8" post-it note pads.  You get 12 in pack for $5.99 if you get the Staples brand.

You need to cut a strip of paper that is 2 1/4" by 8 1/2".
Score this paper at 2 5/8", 3 1/8", 4 5/8" and 6".  If you look at your paper the way I have (with the smallest section as the second one closest to you), #2 will be the "back" to the post it note.  
The picture above and the picture below are both pictures of how to fold the card stock.
 #5 folds back ONTO #4 and gets glued as you see below.
As Susan recommends, I also used Mono Adhesive to adhere #5 to #4.
 Sticky strip goes on back of the post it pad and it gets adhered to #1.
Here is what it looks like from the side... you can see that the "display board" fits behind the post it pad!
To make this Owl I used the Builder Punch and cut out a few extra "wings" to use as arms to hold the balloons.  Are you wondering how I made the balloons?  It's the 3/4" x 5/16" oval!  Order it in the online store now using #120908 for only $12.95.  The little "blow hole" (what else do you call that part?) is the foot from the owl glued to the balloon!  How super cute?
This post it holder is a direct CASE from Susan, how super cute is it?  I love the "stitching" around the edge of the punched witch!
Planning to place an order?  Every $50 spent gets a chance to win a free stamp set PLUS $10 in free "Stampin' stuff".  Use Hostess Code: H3ARM7SJ

Thanks so much to Susan for allowing her stampin' friends to CASE her project idea!  Come back tomorrow for the card that will go with the Birthday Owl Post It Pad.
