Monogrammed Post-It Notes

I wanted to make something I'd actually use for Papertrey's February Blog Hop Monogram Challenge, and I use post-it notes all the time, so I thought I'd make them slightly more attractive to carry around in my purse or have out on the counter.   I got the idea for this one from stationary I saw at minted.com, and it was another three or four minute project.  I die cut the "l" out of a post-it note using PTI's Block Alphabet Dies.  Then I used it as a mask while I painted some strokes with white acrylic paint onto aqua mist cardstock.  Post-it Notes are conveniently 3'x3", so I cut the cardstock at 3 1/4"x6 7/8" and scored 3 1/4" in from the top and the bottom to create the simple holder.
