Personalized Post-it Note Holder

It is that time of year with school ending and with 3 of my children in elementary school and 1 in preschool, I like to give the teachers, assistants, bus driver, office workers a little something as a thank you for the great year with my children. This year, I decided to make these darling post-it note holders and personalize them. They are so simple to make and take almost no time putting together. Here is how to make these darling gifts.

Cut a piece of 8 ½” x 3 3/8” piece of solid cardstock - score at 4 ¼”.

Pull out that crimper you haven’t used in a while that has been sitting in the back of your drawer and crimp the scored end about 3-4 turns.

For the personalized part, punch out a scalloped circle in white, punch out a 1 3/8” circle of coordinating cardstock, and punch out a 1 ¼” circle of white.

Ink up your stamp and stamp your letter on the small white circle.

Adhere the circles together with adhesive and place pop dots under the colored cardstock between the circles and the scallop circle to add dimension.

On the scalloped circle, I used a needle or paper piercer to pierce holes in each of the scallops for a little more added interest. Adhere the scalloped circle on to the front of the holder in the corner.

Separate your post-it notes into ¼ to 1/3 of a stack and place inside the holder.

On the crimped side of the holder, use 10”-12” of ribbon and tie a knot. Trim off the ends.

You are finished!! Now that wasn't too hard was it??
