Post-It Note Holder

Again on my sleepless nights I came across another wonderful blog. It was a blog for sewing tote bags, but in my perusing I found that she was an SU Demonstrator and has all these wonderful "how-to" videos. The demonstrator is Angie Kennedy Jada and her blog is Chic 'n Scratch. I'm such a visual learner and I just love watching this woman's videos. I saw this great Post-It Note Organizer and I thought what a great idea for the ladies in the office at school.

Well here is my take on the holder. I loved the stamp set I used a week ago and had to use it again. I plan on making different ones. I simply put what Post-It Notes I had in my house. I have an entire file cabinet drawer full of better colors at work, but were not allowed in the building until next week. I used what I had just to take a photo.

I did a terrible job on cutting the 1/2 circle for the folder side - I don't have an oval punch (like Angie does), so I made do. It was really quite easy to put together. This is one is mine, and I believe the ones I'll make for the office staff will be school themed.

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!!

Hi Theresa! I found your blog from clicking on your name on the EwenStyle blog. You said you'd like to find the Nestabilities that she uses. I shop in south Denver sometimes so I know you have Hobby Lobby stores there. They carry a pretty good beginner selection of the Spellbinders Dies... that's who makes the line of Nestabilities. You can use your 40% off coupons and get a pretty good buy that way. Oh, just a side comment... I see you are a 2nd grade teacher... I was a 1st grade teacher for a long time... long story, but we teachers have a lot in common! LOL!!
