Post-It Note Project

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I love Post-It notes! I have so many of them in every shape, size, and color you can imagine - but there's always room for more! :-)

I found this little project in my scrapbooking magazine that uses Post-It notes and materials from your scrapbook stash. I think they are so cute and would be wonderful to make for your friends, family, or just for yourself! Enjoy!

Post-it Covers
by Jaime Ward. Supplies Cardstock: Provo Craft and Stampin’ Up!; Digital supplies: Digi Keepsakes by Monica at ScrapMatters.com; Magnetic snaps: BasicGrey; Post-it Notes: 3M; Tacky tape: Provo Craft; Other: Trimmer, scoring blade and adhesive. Note: Idea inspired by Grace Tolman; instructions adapted from her blog at TolmanChronicles.Blogspot.com.

Post-It notes (regular size)
Patterned paper (traditional or digitally created)
Bone folder, embossing stylus or scoring blade
Terrifically Tacky Tape
BasicGrey magnetic snaps or Velcro dots
Paper trimmer


1. Trim cardstock to an 8" x 3 1/8" rectangle.

2. Trim the patterned paper to an 8" x 2 3/4" rectangle, or create it digitally the same size. Adhere to the center of the cardstock.

3. Using the bone folder, embossing stylus, or scoring blade, make folding marks at 2”, 2-1/2”, 5-5/8” and 6-1/8”. Fold on the marks.

4. Use a strip of Terrifically Tacky Tape to stick the Post-It pad to the center of the inside of the cardstock.

5. Fold cover.

6. Place magnetic snaps on the center of the flap openings (if they won’t stay, use little pieces of the Terrifically Tacky Tape). If you don’t have magnetic snaps, Velcro dots will also work.

7. Add embellishments to the cover if desired.
