How to Make a Valentine Gift Post-It Note Holder
Begin by cutting a sheet of card stock into strips of paper that are 3 1/2 x 8 1/2. This will be the base of the Post-it Note Holder.
Score the rectangle at 3 1/2, 4 and 4 1/2 inches. At 3/4 inch from each side cut a straight line across the scores. This notch is for the pen holder.
On the outer edges fold inward and fold outward on the center score.
You may notice that one-half is slightly longer than the other half. This is not a mistake, it is supposed to be that way. Put glue on the outer pieces on the bottom of the fold and adhere it to the side of the piece of paper that is just a bit longer. I prefer glue dots, but you can use whatever you fancy.
It will look like this when folded over and glued in place.
Adhere the Post-It note inside with a tacky glue. I love my Scotch gun and it totally does the trick. Put a strip down each side of the back of the Post-It Note and stick to the inside of the holder.
Then comes the fun part of decorating the Post-it Note Holders!
Recently, I made lots of these Cute Punch Art Owls earlier this week and used them as the main embellishment on the cover. You can click on the link to check out the tutorial!
Add a little greeting with a stamp and an ink pad.
When it is all put together it looks like this!
Isn’t it cute?!
