Blog Meet Kristin
  Hello! I am beyond excited to be here at Blissful and Domestic! I have been a longtime follower of Danielle's, and absolutely adore her and her blog. So I was overjoyed when she asked me if I wanted to be apart of her Handmade December!

   Before I share a simple handmade gift with you, let me introduce myself. My name is Kristin and I blog over at Carman's Corner. I blog about crafting,decorating and my everyday life. I love being thrifty and re-purposing things. I am one of those people who see's treasure where others see trash. I am also a firm believer that God gave us hands for a reason, and I love making things, and giving handmade.
  Today I am going to teach you how to make a post-it note holder. This is a great inexpensive gift that you can give to teachers,co-workers, and friends, pretty much just about anybody. I wanted to share this easy gift because it fits any budget, is super simple, and does not require any major crafting tools. 

  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Post-it Notepad
  • Any Clear Frame {I used a 4x6}
  • Scissors
  • Adhesive
  • Embellishments

   I began by cutting my scrapbook paper to fit my frame. I simply measured the paper and then cut it with scissors.

  Next, I checked to make sure it fit properly and then began embellishing. I used my scallop punches, stamps and little bit of bling. Go ahead and use whatever you want!

  Then you insert the embellished paper into the frame, and adhere the Post-it notes to the outside of the frame. I used glue-dots for this so that it popped.

    I hope that this has shown you just how easy giving handmade can be.  I would love to see what your take one Post-it holders! Feel free to head on over to Carman's Corner and share your handiwork!

Come link up all your holiday goodness!
