Sticky-Note Holder

I've decided to get a jump start on Christmas gifts this year and in order to be frugal I'm going to try to make as many as I can. We have a little guy due right at Christmas time so I want to make sure I get as much done as I can. I'm a kindergarten teacher and have two aids who are wonderful women that really help with our school day. I want to give them each a gift basket of goodies they can use at school or home and decided a personalized Sticky-Note Holder would be perfect. It's super easy and you can personalize it any way you want. Enjoy the tutorial and I would love to see what you come up with! .

Here's What You Need:

A clear picture frame. Mine is 4x6
Sticky Note
R.S.V.P. Brand pen
Any paper or embellishments of your choosing. 

To Make the Holder:
1. Take your choice of paper and cut it 4x6 inch.
2. Decorate your paper any way you want to. Make sure to only place the embellishments on one side. Your sticky note will be placed on the other side. 
3. After you decorate your paper, place in the picture frame. 
4. Peel the back sheet of your sticky-note off and place on the outside of the frame. 

To Make the Pen:
1. Take a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and rub over the pen to remove the wording. 
2. Untwist the end of the pen and pull the ink tube out. 

3. Take coordinating paper and cut 3 1/2 x 1 inch.
4. Roll paper and slide into pen case. 

5. Slide the ink tube back in and twist shut. 
6. Add ribbon and place on Sticky-Note Holder. 

That's It :) Super easy and super cute!
