Post-It Holder Tutorial {by Wait 'Til Your Father Gets Home!}


Hello friends and followers of Emily and 52 Mantels! I'm Meredith from Wait 'Til Your Father Gets Home, and I'm absolutely THRILLED to be here today! I was honored when Emily asked me to guest post on her blog, as I've been a fan for a long time. She's got some of the best and cutest ideas around if you ask me!

I'm married, have a 20 month old running around the house, and have another little one on the way expected to make his or her {yes, it's a surprise} debut on or before June 9th {hoping for before}! I've been blogging for about a year now, and really enjoy all the new friendships I've made as a result.

Today I wanted to share a fun and simple Spring craft that you could easily make in under 10 minutes. The best part? If you've got a little one that enjoys crafting with you, he or she would love to work on this project too. I'm such a sucker for jotting down lists or reminders on Post-Its. I thought it would be nice to have a cute holder in my kitchen desk area to brighten it up a bit, and make things look a little more "Spring-y."

To make a Post-It Holder, you'll need:


  • plastic 5 x 7 frames {the kind that have the little stand on the bottom}
  • Post-It pads in a variety of colors
  • pretty scrapbook papers
  • hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Spring inspired felt stickers {found mine at Hobby Lobby and of course used coupons}
  • mini clothespins
  • paper cutter


materials
 

 To get started, use your paper cutter to measure and cut 5 x 7 pieces of your desired scrapbook papers. I chose two patterns that screamed "Spring" to me.

After inserting the papers into each frame, I chose a Post-It pad that I felt went well with each paper, hot glued the entire back side of it to the holder, and added a few cute felt stickers.


I added a mini clothespin to the second one I made, just to have another spot to hold a reminder or two, if needed!

The best part?! You could totally change these up for each season or holiday AND they'd make such a cute gift for a neighbor or teacher.

Thanks so much to Emily for having me over, and to you all for reading my tutorial today!

I hope you enjoyed it and that you'll stop by and say hello sometime soon!

Enjoy your day!
