Wonderful Friend Frame

I’ve been racking my brain to come up with a simple project for a craft retreat I’ll be attending in October hosted by “Markie’s Mom”! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting some of my trial projects to see what you think. I still haven’t decided exactly what to take and use for my swap, so if you have any fantastic ideas, feel free to pass them along :)
This project is a desktop post-it-note holder.  It is super simple to make.  The base is one of those cheap, clear arylic frames and I put a piece of DP inside, instead of a picture.  I added the post-its to the front, a piece of ribbon and cut out the sentiment with my oval punch after I stamped it.  The only thing I am not crazy about is the size of this particular post-it note pad.  I'd prefer a smaller version so that you could see more of the DP.  But hey-- they were on clearance a long time ago, and I have been hoarding them and waiting for the perfect project to use them on.
Ingredients:  Stamps:  Stampin' Up! {Fundamental Phrases, Warm Words}; DP:  Stampin' Up! {Flock Together}; Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! {Whisper White}; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Garden Green}; Accessories:  Stampin' Up! {Celery Twill Ribbon, Oval Punch}, Post-It Notes.
