Post It Note Holder - Little Gift Ideas

I'm not sure what took me the longest time to try out these cute little Post It Note Holders !
Maybe waiting for the right papers to come along! hmmm
I used AC Moda Bella papers here .
Definitely great little gifts they'll make , brightening up anyone's desk !
I'm also thinking of using up some older DCWV glittered & embossed papers to use next !
I found a tutorial here (with pics )
if you do a google search I'm sure you'll find many others
( & variations ! I also like the little post it note holder keychain )
Basically you can finish in 5 steps or so :

1. Cut cardstock to 7 ½ inches long.
2. Cut cardstock to 3 ½ inches wide.
3. Score cardstock at 3 ½ inches and again at 4 inches.
4.Fold cardstock on score line.
Then flip it over and fold the other side,
both sides should be folded in towards each other.
5.Put adhesive all around the back of the post-it note pad.
Place post-it pad on cardstock with even border of cardstock all the way around.
Finally decorate front of post it note holder as you like !
I am also looking for a suitable sized notepad( A6 is too big ! )
to try out a matchbook notepad idea next !

These are so cute! I keep meaning to make some too. Maybe they would be good stocking stuffers for Christmas...

Your cards are so pretty as well, Paula :)

Take care! ♥

How cute, thanks for sharing the instructions. I just altered some composition books for my daughters for college.
