Mini Post-It Note

I saw this cute little post-it note holder by Pootles.  You can find her version here.  I didn’t have the size of post-it notes she had but I did have some small ones which were 2 inches by 2 inches.  I adjusted her measurements and came up with this.

Updated Post-It Note Holder

I was in my craft room over the weekend working on some cute projects when I saw someone had commented on my blog.  She was looking for the instructions for a Post-It Note Holder I made awhile ago.  So I thought I would make this project for her and include all of the measurements I used.  So here we go…..

I started out with a piece of cardstock measuring 7 3/8″ x  3 1/4″.  I then scored the cardstock at 3 1/8″, 3 1/2″, 3 7/8″.  (Kind of hard to see the score lines in the picture.)

Fold on all of your score lines using a bone folder.  Next I folded the cardstock using the middle score line which is the 3 1/2″.  Take your scissors and make two small cuts up to the score line.

Next I added some adhesive.  Make sure you keep 3 1/8″ as the front of the holder.  I put the adhesive between the 3 1/2″ and 3 7/8″ score lines.

 Next peel of the backing and adhere down.  Next add some adhesive to the back of your 3 x 3 post-it notes and adhere to the cardstock.

Next step is to add the pen.

And then decorate the front.

Notepad Holder and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Wow…..how I missed crafting!!!  It had to take a back seat for a little bit to tend to family matters.  As some of you know, my daughter was in a car accident.  Needless to say that took priority.  So I thought what better way to kick off a welcome back then do a giveaway!!!  Who doesn’t love a giveaway??!!

While up for many nights browsing some fantastic websites I came across this one that inspired my project for today.  She has a great tutorial on these.  Here’s my notepad holder.

Christmas Post-It Note Holders – How To

I have had quite a few emails and a few comments asking me for the instructions to the Christmas Post-It Note Holders as seen below…

P1010688

So I thought I would attempt to explain how I made them.

Cut a piece of cardstock 8-1/2" x 3-1/4".

Score the cardstock at 2", 2-1/2", 5-3/4" and 6-1/4". 

Cut a piece of pattern paper 2-1/2" x 3-1/4" and score the pattern paper at 1/2".

Attach your pattern paper to the cardstock so that the 1/2" score line matches up with the 2" score line on the cardstock.  It should look something like this.

I used my crop-a-dile to punch two small holes for my ribbon to go through.

P1010700

I cut a piece of ribbon approximately 8-1/2", threaded it through the holes and tied knots on each of the ends.  I then used my ATG to add adhesive to the back of the post-it note pad and attached inside.

Next step is to add a closure of some sort….I used velcro.  Then decorate as you like.

I hope this helps you out.  If you have any questions just let me know!! 

Until next time…have fun creating!!

Christmas Post-It Note Holders

Holiday Notes

I wanted to create something simple to keep in my purse to keep track of holiday gifts and such for Christmas and Birthdays.   Why birthdays you ask???  We have alot of birthdays between December and January (around 10 or so) and I thought this would also help keep track of those over the holidays so I have my notes all in one spot.

P1010687

I used XL Label Borders, Honey Do List, and Anyday Bingo & Crossword stamp sets from My Creative Time.
