How-To Tuesday - Memo Holders

as mentioned a few days ago, i planned on showing you how i made these mini memo holders


they are very simple and require only a few items

these also make perfect gifts for teachers, family, friends, neighbors, really, anyone who can hold a pen


the supplies needed:
plastic picture frame 3.5x5 or 4x6 ($.95 at walmart)
fun paper
fun embellishments
ribbon
adhesive
square post-it notes (pack of 4 for $1.95 at walmart)


remove the paper insert, trace onto your pretty paper and insert into the frame


next you want to lay all of your embellishments on the frame with the pad of paper to see how you want the placement


once you see how you want it place, add your adhesive and place

i use double sided tape as it has a really great adhesive and won't show through the ribbon like glue would


i stamped 4 images of my elephant in order to add decorative balloons

i also added some glitter to his hat and the strings



now you have a cute little personalized gift


or make one for yourself



they're so easy you could make several in one afternoon

and just think, you'll have a ton of gifts already made, ready for the giving, at a moments notice
