Tuesday Tutorial: Acrylic Frame Post-It Note Holder

Today's tutorial is for a super quick and easy gift-- perfect for a desk, or if you choose to use the magnetic frame, a refrigerator!

Bent Acrylic (or Magnetic Acrylic) Photo Frame
Ink or Markers
4" x 6" designer paper for the background
Cardstock Scraps
Post-It™ Note Pad

Step 1:
Place your 4 x 6" piece of designer paper in the frame.  This will be your background!

Step 2:
Tie ribbon around the bottom edge of the frame.
Step 3:
Stamp (and color if you need to) your main image on a cardstock scrap and attach it the outside of the frame.
Step 4:
Remove paper backing from Post-It™ Note Pad. Use adhesive to secure note pad to the acrylic frame.
(I added an additional paper mat behind my post-its in this picture).
That's it!  Have a great day!!

This is a great tutorial! I love making these. But I like laying them down and using ribbon or velcro to add a matching pen. I buy the clear pens that have an end that screws off, I use a long, thin strip of matching cardstock, roll it up, and insert it into the pen. Makes a great gift for teachers, office clerks, etc.

Love these! I made these for baby shower prizes. I added a little mini calendar, and an altered pen. They make great gifts! Thanks for another great tutorial!
