Post-It Note Holder

My mom made one of these adorable post-it holders the other day. I liked it so much I asked her if she could send me her instructions so I could make one too. The differences between ours is that my mom used velcro, I used brads and ribbon and of course we used different paper and embellishments. It was super easy to do and you can get as creative as you would like. I am going to give this to one of my student's parents who already brought supplies in as a donation. We had a back to school BBQ on Friday night and start school on Monday, so I am sure I will have many more blog postings to share soon. 

Here is my post-it holder:

Here is my mom's post-it holder:
Post-It-Note Holder Directions:
What you will need:
Paper (double sided works best)
Scoring board
Post It Note Pad
Double sided tape or glue
Cute sticker or embelishment for the front cover
*  Cut a strip of paper 3" wide x 8" long (double sided is cute because you will see the inside when you open it.
First fold is at 2 5/8"
Second fold add another 3/8", which makes it at 3"
Third fold is an additional 3-1/8", which makes it at 6-1/8"
Fourth fold is another 3/8", which makes it at 61/2"
You should have 1-7/8" remaining

Attach your Post-It-Note pad with either tape or glue.  I took off about 10 sheets, because you will see that it is a little too thick otherwise.
Add velcro to the top and bottom with glue, and let dry throughly;  see my photo.
Add your embelishment as your finishing touch and have fun with this project!


  1. For some reason your tutorial pictures are not showing up. The top picture is. I think it is perfectly awesome for a make it yourself gift. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Sorry about that! It should be working now :)
