Post It Note Cover & Pen holder

Hi Crafters,
So Happy your stopped in for a visit today......  My project today is also my blog project for The Stamping Shack Blog where I am a DT Member.  This cute post it note & pen holder ... Super easy and a really fun project to make. I am using the "Hippie Goth Girl" Digi Image from the Stamping Shack Store.  She can be found Here.  And I decided she is my favorite image thus far to use.

 Tip : The measurements will depend on what size your post it notes are...  Mine are:  3" X 3" ... I also applied  sticky strip to the back side of my  post it notes  to adhere to the inside of the holder.


  • Paper trimmer
  • One 4" x 7" piece of card stock
  • Three 3 3/4" x 3" pieces of card stock
  • Three 2 3/4 " x 3" pieces of patterned paper
  • One ¼" x 1" piece of card stock
  • Two 5" lengths of ribbon
  • One small pencil or pen
  • Post-It notes
  • Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive
  • Bone folder
  • Scissors
  • Digi Stamps, ink, Color Pens or Markers of your choice, & embellishments


  1. Step 1

    Score the 4" x 7" card stock across the wide side, 3 " from either end.

  2. Step 2

    Fold card stock along these score lines to create a ½"  center Spine.

  3. Step 3

    Mat all 2 ¾" x 3" pieces of patterned paper by adhering to the 3" x 3 3/4" cardstock pieces.

  4. Step 4

    Adhere one of the matted pieces onto the outside, front of the holder.
  5. Step 5

    Center two pieces of ribbon inside the holder and adhere with Sticky Strip.  

  6. Step 6

    Adhere the other two pieces of layered card stock over the inside panels to cover ribbon ends.
  7. Step 7

    Remove backing from Post-It notes stack and adhere to the bottom right side of the holder I also added a strip of Sticky Strip to back of Post It to hold in place better.

  8. Step 8

    Take the ¼" x 1" piece of card stock and wrap it around your small pencil or Pen to create a loop.  Adhere ends together.

  9.  Adhere the card stock loop at the base of your holder next to your Post It Pad.

  10. Step 9

    Close the top, and tie closed with the ribbon
  11. Step 10

    Decorate the top with your printed out and colored Digital Image and any other embellishments you'd like.  I added some text that I printed and matted to card stock before attaching to front with Sticky strip.

I am also entering this into the weekly Color Challenge over at Outlawz Group.
The colors this week are: Electric Orange. Cherry Pink & Haute Pink and the twist was to use squares somewhere in your project.  I believe I made the requirements and I am very happy with this Post It Note Cover! :)
