Teacher Gifts: Post-It Note Holders w/ mini-pens

As promised, here is another idea for inexpensive Teacher Gifts. These were totally inspired by the lovely Beth & her awesome blog! (If you are looking for Craft Fair ideas & haven't checked her blog out yet, definitely go there quick! She has awesome ideas!) Beth posted this a few weeks back & I just loved the way she used the Teacher saying. I decided to print it out on some cardstock & use on these post-it holders. You can find a video on how to make these HERE. Are you sick of post-it note holders yet? HA!

These are great to give out to either a male or female teacher. Also, if you plan on making these for a Craft Fair, it's best to follow Beth's tip for packaging. Wrapping them up in a clear bag with a topper not only looks super cute, it protects the post-it's from all the lookers & kiddos who stop by the booth to "flip through" your merchandise :) Measurements for my bag topper: 4.75" x 3.5", scored at 1.75" Insert is 4.5" x 1.5"

I used the same cello bags that I put my Greeting Cards in. You can find them HERE. I always buy them through Amber because all of her proceeds go to sending cards to the Troops - isn't that wonderful?

Those pens are from Staples. They were on sale at my local Staples for 50% off last week, so I was pysched!! It might be embarrassing if I admitted to you how many different variations of post-it note holders I've made over the past few days...I guess I am obsessed. They are just super fun & quick to make.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by & let me know if you have any questions!

EDIT: that designer paper is from October Afternoon...cardstock & stamp are from Stampin Up!
