Happy Friday everyone! leslierahye here sharing with you a quick and easy gift idea that is perfect for everyone!! This is a post-it note pad holder. You can decorate them any way you desire, I will share with you the basics today for constructing them. You will need : cardboard coaster [or a 4×4" square piece of chipboard], book paper/music paper or your choice, a binder clip, inks and embellishments [for this I used Ranger Distress Ink and paper ribbon and buttons], an Emory board or sanding block, Plaid Mod Podge or other clear drying adhesive.
Begin by tearing paper and adhering it to the cardboard coaster. You could also just cut a 4×4" square to fit if you prefer. Once paper is adhered, run sanding block or file along edges to smooth them. Ink over the paper for a further aged look. Cut a piece of paper to fit your binder clip and adhere it to the clip...coat the top of the paper as well to seal the paper--this is the part of the project that will be handled a lot and you want to to have some protection.
Find the normal size post-it pads and place on your mini clipboard. Finish off the holder with your favorite embellishments--here I tied some paper string around the clip handle and added some buttons to dangle. Ribbon, string/twine, or bling would also be fun! The sky's the limit! Add a pencil or pen to your project and you have an easy gift to share with everyone!
