Easy Post-It Teacher Gift



Need a last minute teacher gift? Or... want to prepare to send a cute gift with your child before the summer zooms by? Well, it's me here, so of course it's last minute! I already showed you the little box of note cards, but I wanted a little something else to include. I remembered that I did these little Post It Note frames for the twin's teachers a few years back and they loved them. They are SO easy to make too.

You can get these little 4x6 acrylic frames at the Dollar Tree or Walmart. They are designed for photos, but if you lay them down, they make the perfect Post-it Note holders!

Everything is under the acrylic frame so your artwork won't get messy. The only thing on the top is the Post-it Notes and the ribbon. Take a scratch piece of the designer paper, and roll it up and add it inside the Pentel RSVP pen and you have a matching pen!

I'm using OCL's Spotlight of the week stamp set, called Bookworm. I'm also using more of the ADORABLE paper by Imaginisce called Teacher's Pet. LOVE this paper.. it's so nice and thick and double sided... and embossed! PERFECT for any project! I colored the image with Copic Markers and used the Square Nestabilities and the Long Rectangle Nestabilities. Easy peasy!

My kids are out of school next Wednesday. I cannot believe a whole school year went by again... SO FAST. Next week is filled with activities and more field trips, so it will be another busy one! Now, I just need to make a cute bag or box to put these in... hmmmmm. More later!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
