Post-It Note Extravaganza

Hello Everyone,

This week is flying by. Yesterday I worked in my garden early in the morning, mowed and pulled grass. There is just a peace that comes over me when I work in the garden early in the morning. It is my favorite time! I love how I can take my granddaughter out there and let her pull a carrot, rinse it off then watch her gobble it up! She also loves to eat tomatoes as fast as they get ripe.

My sister came over a little later to make Post-It Note Holders. We ended up making 48! She is a teacher and wanted to create a fun little gift that she could stick the other teachers’ mailboxes as a surprise. We crafted approximately five hours playing with product and creating the holders.

                                          

These are so cute, what teacher would not want them!

Post-It note holders make excellent homemade gifts because you can easily customize them to suite your needs. If you are making Christmas gifts you can tailor the cardstock and Designer Series Paper to suite your needs.  You can also whip up a big batch of these holders to have on hand for birthdays, Christmas gifts, and teacher appreciation day. Bundle these with a gift card and your teacher will love it. To further personalize the gift your little one could color on the front layer or write a note to their teacher.
