Butterfly Post-it-Notes

Hello friends... This week we are sharing our favorite IBS stamps... IBS has so many great stamp sets that it was a bit difficult to choose just one but I selected the Butterflies stamp set from the latest release. 
 I have made a Post-it-Notes holder using this stamp & the co-ordinating cut file from Butterflies Cut File. The little glittered banner tab on top is cut with  Fancy Labels 3 Die. I have folded it & adhered on both sides of the top fold which keeps the stand from opening up falling...  

I hope you like my project... thanks for visiting today...
