Teacher Appreciation Gift–Tuesday–Sticky Note Pads with Pen Set

Another cute project I have been wanting to try is a sticky note pad holder thing - at least that’s what I call it :).

Here are the goods for creating this project.

3x3 Sticky Note Pads

StickyNotePadWithPen (6 of 12)

Decorative 12x12 cardstock paper - I suggest using cardstock so it is not so flimsy.

Colorful Buttons…

After you have cut the decorative cardstock into 3 1/4” x 7 3/4” strips (you can get 4 from a 12x12 cardstock), turn the paper around and score it at the following measurements:

3 1/8”
3 1/2”
6 5/8”

Fold the paper on the score lines then attach the sticky pad to the center square on the paper. I used snot dots (aka Glue Dots for those that want the official name).

Though you can choose from a variety of tools (fasteners, eyelets, brads, etc) to fasten the covers together, but I opted for buttons because I have an over-abundance of buttons in my craft room from a Christmas ornament project that never came to be.

Attach one button to the the smaller flap. Then attach another button to the larger flap.

I glue dotted the ribbon to the button then wrapped it in a figure 8 between the two buttons.

Voila…you now have sticky pad holder things. Smile

Presentation is everything so these little guys were paired up with a colorful pen and packaged in a spring cello bag and sealed with curling ribbon. You can never go wrong with curling ribbon!
