DIY Post-It Note Holders


This is a project that I made for a few of my nieces and my daughter for Christmas.

My friend Mardy found the idea on the web… but I can’t for the life of me find the link. The idea on the web was using wrapping paper as the background. First I started that way and then the wheels started turning. Instead of using wrapping paper I thought why don’t I create my backgrounds? I sketched out a few ideas and then started. 

Post-it pads come in so many fun shapes and colors now. Boy do I wish that I invented Post-Its!
This is the first design that I created. At first, I thought that I would just use the Post-It for the flower, but I wanted something in case my niece decided she did not want to buy any more notepads. So I finished the insert so that each was a finished piece of art.






I found the holders here…at a much more reasonable price than the stores, even including shipping.




I found a set of 5 colorful pens at Staples and I sent each girl and extra post-it pad as a refill.






Well I guess we can see which one Mario liked the best!

 He is my little Vanna!
