Simply Cute Sale-A-Bration Send Off!

Wow!  I can't believe it's been 2 months since I last posted!  It's not for the lack of projects to share... Since tomorrow (March 31) is the last day of Sale-A-Bration, I thought I'd share a couple super simple & cute (if I do say so myself) projects that use the Punch Bunch stamp set that you could get for FREE when placing an order of $50 (before shipping & tax). 

First is this magnetic bookmark:
The base of the bookmark was made using the Two Tags Bigz Die (with the Big Shot).  I folded a 2" x 8 1/2" piece of River Rock card stock in half and set it on the die so that the fold was just inside the cut/stitch lines on the top.  The stamp was inked using our Stampin' Write Markers and then punched out using the 1 3/8" circle punch, layered on a 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch.  The magic of this bookmark is created with two strips of magnet attached on the inside of each flap.  This would be a great use for those promotional magnetic business cards you probably have cluttering your fridge or stuffed in the back of your junk drawer.  Just cut them into 3/4" strips and use a good strong glue (Sticky Strip or Multipurpose Adhesive) to attach them to the bookmark,.  If you don't have any scrap magnets laying around to recycle, Stampin' Up! does sell Magnet Sheets (Item 119816/Pkg of 3 sheets, 6" x 13") for $9.95.  That would make A LOT of bookmarks!

The other project I'm going to share with you may look vaguely familiar.  I've reused the mini post-it note cover idea that I blogged about last year--click HERE to see that post, which includes the directions. 

I found the size of this cute little post-it note cover is the perfect size for the 2-Step Owl Punch...
AND, the Punch Bunch stamp set has this cute little coordinating owl stamp!  The glittery heart was punched out using the little heart on the 2-Step Owl Punch and the Glimmer Paper (Item# 121790/2 sheets 12" x 12").  It gives you all the sparkle, but none of the mess of using glue and glitter! 

Wondering what the inside looks like?  Here you go:
