Post It Note Holder Tutorial

DD and I made these adorable Post it Note Holders for her teacher, Ms Debreower who is leaving next week. She wanted us to make something special that she can take with her when she starts her new, permanent teaching position in Goderich. I pulled out the beautiful Crate papers and die buts from the Sugar kit and this is what we did:

2 patterned papers
coaster or chipboard cut to 4x4
binder clip
Post it Notes
die cuts/embellishments (optional)
rub-ons (optional)
sanding block

1. Cut your patterned paper to 4x4 .
2. Adhere to your chipboard.
3. Trim around the corners.
4. Sand the edges. Make sure when you sand the edges that you sand downwards. If you were to sand upwards you would rip or tear your paper.
5. Ink if desired.

6. Add die cut border and embellishments.

7. Cut a piece of coordinating paper for your binder clip. Adhere to binder clip. I added a rub on flower.
8. Add ribbon to your binder clip.
9. Clip your Post it Note to your chipboard coaster. Voila!!

Here is the other one we made. They are so quick and simple to make. **You can add a magnet to the back of them so they can stick on the fridge**
