Post-It Note Holders


Yesterday was my last day of school, so I can finally post pictures of the gifts I made for my students. Some people wondered what I worked on at the Northern California Circle Crop, and this was it. I'd held off posting because some of my kiddos like to visit my blog. A few weeks ago I surveyed my students on their 3 favorite colors and animals so that I could personalize each notepad. Here are some of the ones I made:




And a side view...


I packaged each gift in a cellophane bag, tied it with a ribbon, and added a cute tag.

My tag was made by using my Gypsy to weld together the sun from Create a Critter (with the face hidden) and a tag from Sweet Treats. The cute sentiment is from My Creative Time's "Have Fun in the Sun" stamp set, and I used a Peachy Keen face on the sun.


Click here to see my post where I give dimensions for making these post-it note holders, along with a link to a great tutorial by Made by Momo.
