Technique Tuesday: Acrylic Post It Note Holder

I use a lot of Post-It Notes when I am crafting.  They are great for holding my framelits in place, masking off areas of a card, and getting lit pieces of paper into punches.  So, I decided to make a pretty way to display one of my favorite craft tools.

I started by stamping a background to fit in my acrylic frame (in this case a 4"x6").  I am absolutely in love with the new Tape It stamp set so I just had to use it on this holder.  I also used the new Happy Days stamp set for the sentiment.

Then I put the finished background into the frame so that the frame sat at an angle on the desktop.

To dress it up a little more, I added some ribbon with a bow.  I tied this on the outside of the frame so it did not get smashed inside the frame.

All that was left to do was take the backing sheet off the Post-It Notes and stick it to the frame.  When the notes run out, I can just add another one and I will be ready for more crafting.
