Hello Hello PopFizzPaper!
I’m Juanita and I am jazzed to be a guest blogger this month for the May PopFizz Planner Kit. I instantly fell in love with the watercolor floral stickers and papers that were included in the kit. The patterns and colors just make me so giddy for spring, I wanted to make something I could display around the house.
So, I came up with a calendar and personalized sticky notes.
But wait there’s more. Tell ‘em what else they’re getting Shelia!
When all the sticky notes are used up, you are left with a cute little springy quote that will still be fun to display!
“How it this possible?” you may ask. Never fear! for I shall be your guide. Keep your hands and arms inside the car and please no flash photography.
I used the kit description card, one sheet of the watercolor paper, and the watercolor floral planner stickers (all from the May Kit).
The only extras you will need are repositionable adhesive, white paper and a calendar layout.
Now, I have included here a May calendar with the same font. Just in case you wanted to make a calendar for next month since April is halfway over.
First step is to cut the watercolor printed paper down to the size of the description card (5 ½ “ x 8 ½”). I had a huge internal struggle over cutting this beautiful paper. I just couldn’t to it, its so pretty. But trust me, its all worth it in the end. Just make it quick like a Band-Aid.
Keep that paper trimmer out and cut your sticky notes. You can use any color paper you choose, I liked white, just make sure your notes measure 2” x 2 ¾”. Cut out seven of them.
The last thing you need to cut out is the quote (which is also included in the attached PDF file). Feel free to decorate your quote with some of the decorative floral stickers from the kit. Just make sure and trim them to make clean edges. I think it looks super cute with the font.
And now we assemble! Glue the watercolor printed-paper to the description card (covering the description); attach the calendar and the quote.
The calendar is done! Lets move on to the sticky notes. Decorate your 2”x 2 ¾” pieces of paper with stickers from the floral planer stickers. I used “To Do” headers, long checklists and decorative stickers. But you could use appointment boxes, icons, teardrops whatever tickles your fancy. You can also make horizontal sticky notes if you wanted too!
Run your repositionable adhesive along the top edge. I preferred a repositionable tape to wet glue.
Once everyone is all taped its time to stack ‘em. To make sure that your sticky notes won’t tear up or lift any of the notes underneath them, stick the note to your skin first before you stick it to another piece of paper. Doing this will ensure a clean removal from the stack.
With all the notes stacked on top of each other they work like legit post-its.
Now the very last step on our journey of calendar sticky note making is to put the sticky notes on top of the quote
And there ya go! an adorable calendar with personalized sticky notes! I put mine on a table top easel I found at walmart but you could put it on your fridge or bulletin board.
Well that’s it! I am so grateful and honored to be apart of the blog this month. This kit was amazing and I can’t wait to see what other fun projects we will see from PopFizzPaper using this kit. I also posted a video tutorial on my youtube channel if you need some more visuals on this project.
Happy Crafting Everyone!
