Post-It Note Covers

To do.. today, tomorrow, (should have done yesterday..geez). I'm always making lists or leaving myself a little Post-it somewhere around the house or at school. Post-its are so handy, I keep them practically in every nook and cranny. I do notice they are a little drab though..that bland vomit yellow color.

So with a little revamping I came up with a cute cover to protect them and make them a little more stylish!

All you need is some scrapbook paper, thread or ribbon, some mini brads, Post-its (3X3 size) and viola!

Step 1. Cut your card stock/scrapbook paper 8" X 3"

Step 2. Place your Post-it pad on your card stock and peel of the backing and glue it to the card stock to hold it into place. You will want to fold up the edges and score it with your fingers.

Step 3. Cut 2 3/4" circles out of card stock to use for securing the cover together along with use of the ribbon and mini brads.

Step 5. Attach the ribbon by spinning it around the brads creating a figure eight motion between the two.

In no time these covers can be made with hardly any supplies. Obviously they're great for yourself, and you can stash one in your purse, glove compartment, desk drawer. But why stop there..these would make great party favors: Thank You's, teacher gifts, stocking stuffers...endless!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a fantastic weekend. I'll be linking up to these great parties.

What a great idea! I love to have post-it's in my Glove box of my car or in my purse... and they always get all wrinkled, split apart and no longer want to POST-IT...
What a clever girl!

Way to go.
