So these little Post It Stands are another idea that came from Pinterest. The looked easy and since you use scrapbook paper, there are literally thousands of different ways you could personalize them! Here’s what you need:
1 4×6 clear frame (usually less than $1 at Walmart)
Piece of scrapbook paper
Glue gun and glue sticks
Modge Podge and paintbrush
Post it pad (I got mine for free at Staples with a coupon)
Ribbon and/or other embellishments
First, take the paper insert out of your picture frame. You could use this to trace (onto the back!) of your scrapbook paper, but I thought it was a little smaller than I wanted, so I just flipped the frame with the part I wanted to put the paper in facing down. Trace around it and cut it out just inside the lines, so they won’t show through. I also traced the end piece, or the ‘stand’ part of it, but you don’t have to. I didn’t want it plain though when there was cute paper to put on it lol!
Then you just slip the piece of paper into the frame like you would a picture! And if you cut out the end piece, just add some modge podge onto the frame and add smooth it on. I would do it on the underside of the frame, so that everything matches and is the smooth plastic where you can see it, but it’s not a biggie if you don’t.
Next, take your pad of post its, apply hot glue to the back of it and stick it onto the front of you frame, making sure it is nice and centered.
Then just get some coordinating ribbon, cut a length long enough to go across the front of the frame, and onto the back a little bit, so you have a place to glue. Add a few dots of glue along the front, and one dot on each end of the ribbons, so it will stick to the back.
Add a little bow on the front if you want, attaching with a bit of hot glue. Flip it over and you’re done! This would make a cute little gift/stocking stuffer or just to keep on your desk at work. The best part is that you can switch the paper out anytime your mood changes!
So I can’t find the picture I took of the finished stand…..so here is a picture of them in my craft booth. Lower right hand corner…I’ll put the photo in as big as I can. Sorry about that guys lol!
