Acrylic Post-It™ Note Holder

by Beth Silaika

Turn an acrylic photo frame on its end to make a cute desk accessory!


  • 4" x 6" Horizontal Bent Acrylic Photo Frame

  • RSVP™ Pen (can be purchased from most office supply companies)

  • Ink or Markers

  • Stamps

  • 4" x 6" cardstock for the background

  • Cardstock Scraps

  • Adhesive

  • Post-It™ Note Pad


  1. Step 1

    If needed, trim 4" x 6" cardstock to fit inside the frame. This will be your background.

  2. Step 2

    Stamp main image on a cardstock scrap.

  3. Step 3

    Stamp background cardstock (here, Weathered Background on More Mustard). Color main image with markers.

    Layer main stamped image on a coordinating scrap of cardstock, and attach to background.

    Hint: Make sure to offset the main image so it is not covered by the Post-It Note Pad you will be placing on top of the acrylic frame.

  4. Step 4

    Add ribbon to background.

    Slide assembled background into the photo frame.

    Note: The photo frame is upside down. It will rest on a flat surface like a small desk.

  5. Step 5

    Remove paper backing from Post-It™ Note Pad. Use adhesive to secure note pad to the acrylic frame.

The Dollar Stores in my area has the RSVP pens in packs of two. That's just the brand name, the pen has a clear shaft and you can unscrew the end of the pen to place the paper. Roll the paper very tightly around the ink barrel and hold it as you place it into the barrel. The paper will unroll when you let go, and will settle in the right place.

These acrylic frames are located in Jo-Ann's and Michaels in the Frame Section of the store. They are usually grouped together on a small section of shelf. They may not have the size you are looking for, but keep checking back.
