A Perfect Place for Post It's!

Hey y'all! Happy Monday!!! Did you enjoy a nice weekend?! I hope so! Brandon and I had a wonderful time visiting with our families! Today we are back on the road again making the 12 hour drive back up to Pennsylvania after our vacation, but I wanted to take a minute to blog before we left. I have a post going up on the "She's A Sassylady" blog today and I wanted to share my projects with you here as well. For the tutorial on how I created this project, go HERE for the direct link.

I created these little 'Post It' note holders in treat baggies with my Mom this weekend. As many of you may already know, my Mom teaches 5th grade. Well, she is a scrapper like me and enjoys giving her fellow educators a nice little treat every now and then. This week at school they are going through their yearly state testing with the students, so Mom thought it would be nice to make a little something for everyone. So I came up with this simple take on the 'Post It' note holders. Again, for full instructions and more pictures (including the inside of these once opened) on how I created these, you can visit the link above. I hope you won't mind doing a bit of blog hopping. I promise you'll love the 'Sassy' blog! It's great!

Each of these hold 2 of the 'Post It' note pads. You can purchase a pack of 'Post It' notes at Wal Mart in a pack of 6 pads for a little over $5. So you could make 3 of these out of one pack, so very affordable. I put an initial on the inside and the back of each of these to personalize them a tad. I hope the teachers will enjoy using these.

For the back, we added our business card. Mom and I create scrappy stuff on the side for a little extra $ to support our crafty addiction! LOL.
That is all for me today. I need to get ready and hit the road! That drive is a killer, but I am glad to be going back home. I miss my home and my scrappy space!

Thank you, as always, for visiting my blog! I hope you'll drop by again soon! Happy Scrappin' to ya!
Pin It!
