Post-It Note Holder

Hey Hey Hey!!!!
(That's me being really excited to share this idea with you.)

How many people in your life do you have to make presents for this year? Teachers? Church leaders? Neighbors? You can't be expected to buy all those gifts! 

Here is a really F.U.N. idea for a gift that you can make for any of those random... er, special people in yours or  your kid's life. 


  • Decorative Paper
  • Scissors
  • 3.5 x 5 plastic photo frame                                                                                                                                                  (the kind with the stand attached)
  • Embellishments                                                                                                                                                  (I'm using ribbon and hang tags)
  • Post-it Note stack pulled into 1/2 or 1/3                                                                                                            (each section will go on it's own frame, so you can use 1 pad for multiple gifts)

1. Cut paper to fit the size of your frame

2. Insert the paper to photo frame 
            Add a piece of decorative paper to th back, also, for a finished look.


3. Add embellishments to the top of the frame
            The stand should be at the top of the photo frame. 

4. Add a section of post-it notes to the middle of the frame

Now you have a really cute post-it note holder that anyone would love to have. 

Photo frame: $1 Wal-Mart
Scrapbook Paper: $.60 (full sheet) Hobby Lobby
Ribbon: $1 (full spool) Hobby Lobby

Happy crafting!


  1. I'm going to making a few of those for teacher gifts. They are perfect for that!

  2. Wow, Susannah, so cute and even I could do it.
    Thanks a ton!

  3. Very cute! And even cheaper if you stock up on Post-Its at the back to school sales. Just don't give one to Ben, cause he's not allowed to bring stuff like that to work...

  4. Hi, Susanna! Wow, this is a seriously cute idea! I love it and need to make one for myself - I can never find my dratted post-its when I need them. Thanks for the great tute, and nice to meet you!

  5. What a cute idea! That's super easy to make and it's a great, quick gift!

  6. You're all right-- this gift is so SIMPLE, so FAST, and appropriate for SO MANY PEOPLE, that you could just set up an assembly line to make a ton at one time! I did :) Think big.

  7. Do you just use the adhesive on the back of the post it note to put it on the frame? OR Should I add some sort of glue to make it stick longer?

  8. Yes, the note adhesive should be enough to stick to the frame. If it isn't, you can use an alternate source of stickiness!

  9. Wow, what a great idea! SO simple! Thanks for sharing this project : )

  10. hay suz that looks really fun to make.

  11. I am so glad the glass infusion and the post it note holders were such a hit! Both easy and great projects.

    Loving the blog! You have been busy!

  12. I love this idea! What a simple but very cute project. Thanks for the tutorial and thanks for checking out my site. You have a great blog.
