You are here Home / Simple Post it Note holder
With the holidays coming up, I want to give you some ideas on fun, simple and cost effective gifts that are perfect for your co-workers, teachers, coaches and anyone else who deserves a little surprise gift! Our local stores are cleaning out their school supplies, so I was able to snatch up some cheap post it notes. I saw the purple ones and immediately thought “looks like Sweet Sugarplum!.”
Here’s what you’ll need to make these holders:
-A piece of cardboard for the base (6″ x 4″). I use the bottom cardboard from the 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper stacks-they make perfect bases for this, plus I get to use up the ones that I have cluttering my piles lol.
-A 6″ x 4″ piece of Designer Series paper. I used the Pop of Pink DSP for the purple post it, and Moroccan DSP for the yellow post it holder.
-A piece of cardstock in a coordinating color that is 5 x 1/2″ by 3 x 1/2″. I used Sweet Sugarplum and Dapper Denim for my samples here.
A piece of Whisper White cardstock 2″ by 3 x 1/4″ for the sentiment
-Coordinating ribbon (used Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy here). You’ll need a piece long enough to wrap around the entire holder, plus a 2″ piece for the pen holder.
-Flourishing Phrases clear mount stamp set
-Dapper Denim, Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy inks
-Magnet strips, if you choose to make these with a magnetic background
-Tape Runner and Glue dots
-Post it notes
Just start from the bottom and build up! Use a lot of glue/tape, especially on the post it note itself, so it doesn’t fall off. For the pen holder, take the 2″ piece of ribbon and glue the ends together to make a loop. Glue the loop end directly under the bottom of the post it note pad, leaving the loop itself above the post it note. Insert pen. Voila.
I hope this inspires you to make some of your own! If you do, please leave me a picture in the comments so I can ooh and ahh over your handiwork!
