I also began making some note holders, which I've made in the past but I wanted one for my desk and the other is a gift (will probably end up making a couple more this weekend). I love making these! They are super easy to do, but look so cute when completed and can be adapted to any theme. It is a 5x7 acrylic frame turned a different direction. You choose papers that coordinate the person they are for and slip into the frame. Then add a die cut to the top of the frame with pop dots. I also added buttons on these. Tie a ribbon (to add dimension and to keep paper from slipping out, but you can slip the ribbon off the bottom if you wanted to change out the paper if you like). The add a post it note pad onto the top that can be replaced when it runs out and voila!
This is the back view so you can see how it is inclined and works great as a post it note holder.
On the back, the part that faces the person on the other side of the desk, add a coordinating piece of paper (I adhere this to the outside so as not to have an issue about hiding adhesive) and the word "notes" (popped, of course! LOL). I used Mickey Font (welded on my Gypsy) and shadowed it as well on these.
I had made some for teacher appreciation week which I sent to my son's teacher and my sister, the teacher. These are slightly different, but same idea...the possibilities are endless on this one!
Since I made this post all about Back to School, I decided to also show some pictures of other projects I've made/classes that I've taught. One in particular that I love is the wreath that hangs on my door all year long. I've also made these for my son's teachers and of course, one for my sister!
Most all cuts are from the Locker Talk cartridge.
Since I teach Middle School, I included that cut on my wreath...
This one I made for my sister, who loves bees and that is her class theme, so I added a bee on hers...
The last project I'm going to post was a frame I made for my son's teacher. The paper is from the DCWV Grade School stack (which is awesome!) and I added a cut from A Child's Year of a boy reading to place under the tree.
I know it was a long post, but I figured, now that I have a blog, might as well keep it all here (categorized - if you know me, that's a must!). I love comments, so feel free to leave one if you'd like!
