Matching Matchbooks

This is a Kansas weekend that will be remembered for our small surrounding communities and rural farmsteads. Saturday afternoon and evening I was between my craft room and the basement for tornado warnings twice. The second time, a large wedge tornado {as reported on the scanner} was just 1 mile west of our house. This happened after dark & there was NO way I was about to come out of the basement. The wind whistled through the windows and doors like I have never heard. Our damage was limited to a power pole broke off at the bottom, a few limbs down and the loss of a couple of surge protectors in the house (they did their job!). 

The tornado hit many farms north and south of town on a NE path and my prayers go out to the families that have experienced devastating losses. A couple of farms lost both the home and all the out buildings. Mr. Hubby is an electrician and plumber and we were out all day yesterday trying to provide the immediate repairs so people could have power and water. To see all the people come together to help in anyway they can makes me proud to live where I do. It is the true definition of community. The cleanup will continue for a long time.

On to a happier note...I finished a Post-It Note project this evening and would like to share it with you.

Post-It Matchbooks

The matchbook covers and the following measurements are for sticky notes that are 3"x3" (left) and 2"x1 1/2" (right). I have had the Butterfly Prints stamp set for some time and it has been very versatile for me. This stamp set is only available for a little longer as it will retire May 31st. 

(Click here for the retiring stamp list PDF).

Here are the directions for the 3"x3" size sticky notes:
Cut card stock to 9 1/4"x 3 1/8"
Score at 3 3/8"...3 3/4"....and 7 3/4"
Punch short edge, closest to 7 3/4" score line

Direction for 2"x 1 1/2" sticky notes:
Cut card stock at 6"x 2 1/4"
Score at 2 1/8"...2 1/2"...and 5"
Punch short edge, closest to 5" score line
