I am a sucker for stationary, and the only thing I love more than sticky notes, pens, pencils, paper clips (you know what I am saying) are cute little Doodlebug inspired containers designed to hold them all! So for this week's project, I decided to use the Great Outdoors collection for a fall themed sticky note easel holder.


Ummmm...can we say cuteness overload?!


Here's a little side view so you can see how the sticky notes just fit into a little pocket on the easel. I used textured cardstock for the base and patterned paper for the pocket, but you could definitely use all patterned patterned paper or even reverse them.


And then I just embellished them with some die cutes from the Odds and Ends and Chit Chat packs, creating a little scene on each. It's a simple project that I think has a pretty awesome "wow" factor to it with the all the dimension! Here's how you can make one too:


Easel Base (textured cardstock): 3 3/4" X 12"
Score at 4" (mountain fold), 8" (mountain fold), 9 3/4" (valley fold), 11 1/2" (mountain fold).
Glue the 1/2" section to the first 4" section.

Pocket (patterned paper - remember, you will see both sides so choose accordingly): 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
Score on the short side at 1/2" and 3 3/4"; Score on the long side at 2 1/2" and 3"
Fold in the two panels along the long edge and trim inward at the small flap created by the 2 1/2" and 3" score. Fold these in. Crease other fold and then glue together to create the pocket. Glue the pocket onto the easel base.


And then have all sorts of fun embellishing with the Odds and Ends and Chit Chat packs. Fill them with a sticky note pad (full 3x3" notepads will fit or anything smaller) and you are all set to have these adorn your desk or the desk of someone special to you. I think I need to go make 100 of these! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is such a great idea for coworkers! It is the time of year to give, share & enjoy. These look very easy to create, and we all have LOTS of supplies to embellish these. My Seaside Summer goodies will work beautifully for this. I live in Florida & love the beach, so it would look awesome on my desk year round. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Valentines......you get the idea. You could change it out every month. You'll be the envy of all your office mates :o)
