Desktop post-it-note holder tutorial...

here I go...I promised a tutorial on my desktop post-it-note holder...this is how I make it and others may find it easier to do it a different way...I just wanted to share the instructions of how I make it with you! So, first you will need a 4x6 plastic frame...you can buy these at Longs...they do go on sale for really cheap! you can purchase the ones that are vertical or horizontal. the CS is 4x6 and the DP is 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. you can use the 3 x 3 post-it-notes, flowers for the top, dew drops if you want to add them and your sitting image.
so take your CS as your base and tape down your DP to it.
here you will insert the CS w/ DP inside the front of the frame.
this is what it will look like once it's inserted..
now...you must put double stick tape on the back of your post-it-note before you stick it down...this will insure that your post it will stick to the frame =) this one's for you "K"! I know you know who you are...lol!
here's what it looks like once it's taped down on the front...
you can use anything to decorate your frame...I used the natural flowers. I also used the fabri-tac to stick them down...this glue is exactly like a hot glue gun, but without the heat and never having to worry about burning yourself in the process. Just hold the flowers down for about 30 seconds and it should be stuck down.
you can place them where ever you want to...I do them like this, but leave a little space on the top so you can add your image to it.
here I used the double stick foam tape...you can make it as long as you like but remember that it must be hidden behind your image. I used 3 layers of the double stick foam tape, so that my image is up above the flowers and it gives it a look like she's sitting among the flowers =)
this time I decided to use a sitting Tilda! she's sitting among the flowers!
I added my dew drops to the corner...
here's the up close of what Tilda looks like...sitting in the flowers =)
okay gang...was that easy or what?! now you go out there and create, create, create! I used my copics to color this sitting Tilda...got the base flowers from Roses on Paper, the other flowers from other stores...if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask! well, thanks for stopping by today...yipee!!! it's FRIDAY! have a great weekend everyone! my tutorial will be posted on my sidebar for future reference...under tutorials!

Lovely post-it note holder for your friend "K" (hi Kyoko!). You should have also put sticky tape on the bottom of the frame so she can keep it "anchored" to her desk (just kidding!!!!) You did a very good job with this pictorial, Joy! I truly enjoyed it and you know what? I learned something about putting that foam tape on the top for the image. Great job. Cami

Thanks so much for sharing!! Love that you used a plastic frame which makes it easy to replace the post-it pad once it runs out.
