Arianna Blooms Sticky Note Box Tutorial for Heartfelt Creations
Is there anyone in the world that doesn’t use sticky notes? I use them to make lists to help me stay on track with my work, I use them as bookmarks, and I even use them in my crafting when I want to mask off an area, or secure a stencil or die to paper. But since my desk can get a little, <ahem> messy when I am working, sometimes I can’t find my sticky note pad. Not to worry! I’ve designed an attractive flip top box to hold my sticky notes and keep them neat and tidy. The best part is, I can always find them on my desk, even when it’s in an uproar. Here’s a step by step tutorial so you can create your own sticky note holder. Oh, and they make great gifts, too! Enjoy this Arianna Blooms Sticky Note Box Tutorial!

Watch the You Tube VIDEO that shows you how to shape the Arianna Blooms.
Once you have shaped and stacked your flowers, proceed to the next step.
Spritz the finished flowers with Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle Mist. Set the two small flowers aside for now. Die cut the center pieces from the Arianna Blooms die using yellow paper from the collection. Shape as shown in the video and glue into the center of the flowers. Set the finished flower aside for now.
Cut FOUR 3 ¼” squares from the Arianna Blooms Paper Collection and ink the edges.
Die cut both lacy flowers from the Arianna Lace Die, one from Whisper White Cardstock and One from Strawberry Slush. Die cut the medallion from Raindrops on Roses from Whisper White Cardstock. Stack these elements on the top of the box in this order: medallion, pink lacy die cut, white lacy die cut, and finally, the stacked flower. Die cut 2 butterflies from the Arianna lace die and stack together, as shown. Glue in the lower left hand corner of the box.
Finish shaping the two small flowers that you set aside earlier. Make one into a rosebud. Die cut several sets of small leaves using HCD 751 Cut Mat Create Die 2A. I used green paper from the collection for this.
Finish decorating the top of the box, as seen here. Add Diamond Stickles to the little butterfly.
I attached a vintage rhinestone pin to a small crocheted doily and then hot glued this onto the front of my box. This becomes the “knob” used to open the box.
To finish the inside of the box, add a small matted ticket to the artwork. Stamp HCPC 3609 Arianna Blooms Bouquet onto the top page of the Sticky Note Stack. I have 3 sticky note pads inside the box, each measuring 3 ¼”. Now your box is all ready for gifting!
I hope you enjoyed this Arianna Blooms sticky note box tutorial, and that you’ll have fun making these little boxes throughout the year. Instead of sticky notes, you could fill them with candy, a gift card, buttons or jewelry. The boxes are so quick and easy to make….you’ll want to make dozens and dozens of them!
