Happy Holidays! This is Jeannie from NonnasScraps. I am so pleased to be with you today! 

Last year I gifted all of my fellow teachers with Post-it Note holders. They not only loved them then, but have asked me repeatedly for the same gift this year. I saw a photo of an easel holder somewhere (sorry...old age!) and it has been at the forefront of my thoughts. Voila! Teacher's gift meet easel!

Base rectangle: 8 1/2" x 3 1/4" (brown)
Front mat: 3 3/4" x 3" (red)
Front: 3 1/2 x 2 3/4" (brown)
Inside mat: 3 1/4" square (red)
3 1/4" (approx) Post-it notes
miniature pen
paper doily (Wilton from Michaels)
decorative cut (wreath from Lettering Delights)

  • Prepare the 8 1/2" x 3 1/4" rectangle. Along the long edge score at the following increments: 2", 4". 4 1/2". (These lines are indicated by "fold" on the photo.) 

  • Fold 1 1/2" of ribbon in half. Center on the back of the inside mat (3 1/4" square). Glue inner mat onto backing as indicated above by "Post-it Notes".

  • Fold as pictured above. This is the inside of the holder. Glue the Post-it notes to the red mat.
  • Complete front by layering the front mats. Glue the layered mats to the lower half of the front. 
  • The easel sits behind the notes. 

  • Slide the miniature pen into the ribbon holder and gift! 
I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did! I do not want to forget that the background paper in my main photo is from ScrapGirls Christmas Candy collection. Check out their amazing digital Holiday Collections...and happy holidays to all!
