Coaster Post-It Note Holder



I received a lovely coaster post-it note holder from my good friend Kim. Of course, I had to make one too! This is another simple and fast project that took under a half hour to complete.

Supplies include a medium weight coaster, modge podge, designer paper of your choice (I used Basic Grey Blush Collection), a binder clip, ribbon, bling, and a post-it note pack.

First, I traced my designer paper on the coaster. I cut it out using my favorite Tim Holtz Tonic Scissors (the best!!) and I adhered it using Modge Podge (of course I used modge podge right?). I then inked up the edges of my coaster using my Tim Holtz Distess Ink in Fired Brick. I attached a piece of the designer paper to the binder clip and also adhered it using Modge Podge. Next, I stuck the post-it notes to the finished coaster and clipped it down with my binder clip. Finally, I added a matching ribbon to the binder clip, a Prima flower and some bling =)

Thank you for reading. Leave me a comment so that I can come and visit you too! I hope you are having a wonderful week =)

Hugs,

Super cute. I have a question - do you modge podge on top of the paper too, or just to adhere it?

Great idea and really like the sturdiness of this one! Most of the other holders are just made out of cardstock!
