Can you imagine your life without Post-It notes? I love them all! I made several different types to sell at the fair; they make great stocking stuffers!
To make these, cover 4x4 coasters (buy them blank or go have a drink and snag a couple) with Designer Series Paper (these are retired, but we have lots of current ones to pick from). I like to cut my DSP to size and adhere with my Anywhere Glue Stick. Front AND back, please! Then take a wee scrap piece and adhere it to a Medium-size binder clip. Clip the Post-It pad to the coaster and then you can use the clip to hang it. Or if you would rather, you can add a magnet to the back. For the pen, use a RSVP pen (by Pentel). Open the end and wrap a strip of DSP that is about 3-1/4" x 1" around the barrel and then slip it back in. Too easy! These pads are nestled in a cello bag and tied with a ribbon. I sold them for $5 and still have a few left if you need them. Just call!
These Post-it notes are also the 3x3 size but are designed to carry in a purse or backpack. Coordinating card stock is cut 3-1/8" x 7-5/8" and scored at 2", 2-1/2", 5-1/2", and 6", then the corners are rounded with the corner-rounder punch. I copied this idea from one that another demonstrator had received in a swap; on her's, the focal image was stamped, but I used scraps of Designer Series Paper on mine. I cut it to size, then made it glittery by covering the surface with a Versamark ink pad, embossed with Heat & Stick powder, and finished with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. A bit of Basic Black card stock and some brads finish the design. To close them, I used some wee magnets that I found online. (There is actually a magnet on the flap, but I covered it with card stock because the magnets are so strong that they rip the card stock otherwise. I sold these for just $3 and still have a few left.
I also made some mini post-it note keychains and sold them for $1. You can see them on this post.
These are great gifts for office mates, teachers, and friends!
