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