I saw this adorable idea at The Not So Functional Housewife and also at Paper Wings and just fell in love with it. It makes such an appealing little display for post it notes, and it’s easy, fun, inexpensive and simple to coordinate with any decor, person or holiday.
So cute for a little boy’s desk…
or a girl’s or mom’s desk.
These are a piece of cake to make, and here is what you need:
Plastic photo stand (from Walmart, Target or Dollar Store…)
Ribbon, twine or stickers
Double sided craft tape or craft glue (optional)
You could also make these with the magnetic plastic frames to hang on the refrigerator maybe for a grocery list.
Cut out your scrapbook paper the same size as the paper insert from the frame, and then slide it in your frame.
If you want to dress it up some, just tie some ribbon around it with a tag and the person’s name or whatever you’d like it to say, and attach your sticky notes. If you need too, you can always reinforce it with some tape or craft glue, but I didn’t need too.
There you have it, so easy right? These would make cute gifts for many occasions.
