Post-it Pad Present

PicMonkey Collage-2

One I made for my mom--this is taken months after I made it, and the pen pal got moved a little.

One I made for my mom–this is taken months after I made it, and the pen pal got moved a little.

We have made these post-it pad presents for many of Kaylin’s friends for birthday presents, and I have made one for each of my sisters. I got the original idea off of Pinterest from Paper Wings blog.

Materials needed:

  • 5″ x 7″ clear plastic photo frame–I get mine from Walmart for $1
  • post-it pad
  • Pen Pals–I get a pack of 3 at Walmart for $3
  • Pencil/pen
  • Scrapbook paper and any embellishments you want to use (ribbon, chipboard, etc.)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks if desired

First, I cut a piece of scrapbook paper so that it is 5″ x 7″.

Next, I put on the post-it pad.  I have read that if you get the super sticky post-it pads, that they don’t fall off.  I have tried double stick tape and glue dots, and I don’t like how they work.  So I just hot glue the next-to-last page to the last page, and glue the pad onto the frame.  After I glue on the pad, I put on the pen pal and insert the  pen or pencil.101_5932

This present I used tacky glue and glued glass beads all over the frame.
