Post it Pad project

These Post-It pad stands are the cutest little quickie project ever! If you can measure and cut paper, you can make it! I used the fabulous black and white toile and checked paper that I love so much, then snazzed it up a touch with a thin black satin ribbon. I put a bow on it, but decided I liked it better without it. I also tried it with a wider ribbon, but I really like the thinner ribbon better. You could use whichever one you like. This will be a great little stocking stuffer for almost anyone, and how perfect for teachers?? Pair this with a matching altered clipboard for a shopping list, and viola! Instant gift with a personal touch!! Make some today!!

And don't forget to cut a small rectangle of paper to slide down into the RSVP pen..they come in all colors, so you can color coordinate your entire project! Isn't this fun??
What are YOU doing to get ready for Christmas in July?
Merry, Merry!


  1. What a cute idea for the 12 days of Christmas, too! Are the directions posted somewhere yet? I've looked at so much this month I can't keep it all straight in my head LOL

  2. Okay....after a little searching, I found the directions. What a great idea and yours are the best. I have a friend that has done her little girl's bedroom in black toile and a pastel pink....very French. I love toile myself. I have enough yardage of blue toile to use it in a quilt for the backing and the border. Just have to decide what to do with the middle.

  3. That turned out really nice. I am anxious to give one of those a try!

  4. Okay, I'm a little bit slow, I guess. But, what exactly did you use under the Post It pad? I can't tell what you covered with the paper and did you just glue it to the paper? You may have had directions earlier, but I can't find them. Thanks!

  5. Becki-go to the post below the picture and there is a link to the directions on Magical Holiday Home. Actually, it's a link to a's an acrylic picture frame, turned over...then you just cut paper to fit the frame and slide it into the frame...embellish as you please!!

  6. looking lovely!!!! I have my paper and what nots but I need to figure out my embellishments yet!!! I can't wait to go to the teachers classrooms to see what patterns I will use for them!!!


Thanks for visiting! Please leave me a message to say hi!
