Post-It Note Holder

by Sharon Jeffs

Post-It Note Holder


  • Pack of Post-it notes
  • A4 sheet chipboard
  • Paper and Cardstock
    • Basic Grey Patterned Paper, Urban Prairie, Corn Husk     ( BG-URP-1314   $0.69)
  • Inks and Embossing Powders
    • Tsukineko Brilliance Dew Drop, Coffee Bean     ( TSU-BD-Cof   $2.69)
  • Embellishments
  • Adhesives


  • My Post-it notes measure 3 4/10 inches by 3 4/10 inches by 4/10 inches.
    To create the base sides and top I am going to measure out chipboard pieces at the following sizes –
    • Base and Top – 4 inches by 4 inches
    • Sides – ½ inch by 3 ½ inches (cut 4 of these)

  • Cover the top and base pieces on both sides with the Basic Grey Patterned paper then ink the edges with the Coffee Bean inkpad.

  • Cut a ½ inch by 12 inch strip of patterned paper and use to cover and connect up the four sides.
    Don’t worry about not having enough left to cover all of the fourth side as this will be covered later.

  • Cut a 1 inch by 12 inch strip of patterned paper and adhere to the inside of the sides.

  • Notch each of the corners of the overlapping patterned paper and fold in.

  • Adhere to the base and ink the top edges.

  • Cut two strips of patterned paper measuring 1 inch by 3 1/3 inches.
    These will be the hinges of the box lid.
    Begin by adhering the first one to the outside side edge that wasn’t completely covered.

  • Fold this strip backwards and centre top onto the box.
    Adhere strip to top of box to create the first half of the hinge.
    Repeat on the inside of the box to reinforce the hinge.

  • Adhere ribbon around sides and tie in a bow at the front.

  • Trim off pieces of the Felt stem to add around the flower and adhere to the centre of the top of the box along with the felt stem pieces radiating from the flower.

Thanks for coming by.
