Quick and Easy Teacher Gift

I know it's kind of late, but these sticky note holders are so quick and easy, you can whip up a whole bunch in no time.

The Materials:  1 piece double-sided cardstock, 1 small sticky note pad (about 3" x 3"), adhesive, Velcro or small magnetic closure, embellishments of choice

Step 1:  Cut your cardstock to 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.

Step 2:  Score 1 1/2" in from the left side.  Then score 1 7/8" in from the same side (3/8" from the first fold).

Step 3:  Score 3" in from the right side.  Then score 3 3/8" in from the same side (3/8" from the first fold.

Step 4:  Fold all of your score lines with a bone folder.

Step 5:  Adhere your sticky note pad to the center inside cover.

Step 6:  Use either your Velcro or magnetic closure to make a closure for the holder.

Step 7:  Embellish as desired.

Post-It Holder 1Here is one of the holders that I made.  I used Brenda Walton's Neopolitan Scrap Pad to Go and dollar store flowers.  The flower Post-It note is from 3M, and I split it into 3 sections to use for 3 different  gifts.

And here are the gift bags that I made for them.
