Hi all~ someone has asked me to do a tutorial on my post it note holders, so here it is.
Its very easy, and unfortunately, I didnt take any photos as I was going along, just of the finished product. but please ask if you have any questions.

You can also click on this photo to enlarge it.
Start with an acrylic 4 by 6 horizontal photo frame. I got mine at Joannes, but there are pretty much readily available everywhere. Its important to get the frames that would hold a horizontal photo holder, because although you can make them with the vertical frames, they are not as strong. They may also snap when the recipient would lean on them to write on the post its.
Cut out a piece of designer paper in the pattern of your choice in a 4 by 6 size and insert where you would the picture.
I then stamped my images ( all from Vintage Postcard- a retired Stampin up set) in versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Any image will do- childrens themes, kitchen, ideas for men such as golf balls, sports themes, etc. Just make sure its kinda on the small side so there is plenty of room for the post its. I used Spellbinders to cut it out in a square and them used another for the scallops behind it. I used pop dots to adhere this to the frame, and I centered it on the left side.
For the post its- you can get them in many pretty colors and  patterns, just keep your eye out when shopping! Look for sales and bundle packages. I use plenty of adhesive ( ATG gun or double stick tape) to attach the post its to the frame. These are also centered. When they are used up, you can just so the same with a new one.
Lastly, I tied a ribbon around the top portion and finished it with a bow. Enjoy!!! Your done~
Many thanks for stopping by...
