Stationary Set - CR84FN43

I was looking for some pattern paper to use for the beautiful  CR84FN colors and found the sweetest image in the Graphic 45 papers.  It was the inspiration for my project.
A side view showing the post it notes: 
 I started with creating a post it notes holder using the template here.  I loved how it turned out and decided to create the coordinating stationary set.

This is how it looks when it is closed:
 and when you open it up by taking the top off:

I have to admit I didn't finish it.  There are cut pieces that you create that you can attach to the part that lays flat and to fit in the pockets.  I gave it to my youngest as she is always playing teacher and she was thrilled. 
This template is on SCS and you can find it here

The only stamping this week was the thank you sentiment.  I ended up moving the tab to the bottom of the cover so it could tuck into the twine and hold the matchbook closed.  I also put the thank you face down so when they open it up they see the sentiment.  I thought this would be great as a teacher gift. :)
