Creative Holders

Pin It

Holder Business Cards

I have a problem with everything having a place. That includes my post-it notes. I have a cute little holder I have had for awhile but since I have been changing the decor of the office I wanted something that matched the room. With some decorative flair.

This is going to be an easy peasy project. Just some 5 x 7 plastic frames, scrapbook paper, ribbon and embellishments.

Take the "fake family" out of the picture frame. Which reminds me I have photo frames on my walls with fake families in them. ha-ha 

I just used the paper out of the frame as a template and cut out the scrapbook paper. 

Easy enough...

Now I just took some ribbon and hot glued it around the frame. 

Hot glued a pretty little flower. You can add anything, charms, bows, or maybe a small frame with a photo in it. Endless possibilities.

I just went for simple and glued my flower in the corner on the ribbon. 

It is perfect placement for the next step.

Just take off the backing of your post-its and stick it right on the frame. 

Cute, right???

Well, I didn't stop there. I had an extra plastic business card holder sitting around and decided to hot glue it to another plastic frame. And, slid in another piece of scrapbook paper.

Add some ribbon and a flower and you have a cute business card holder.

I think I may make a couple of these for gifts. What do you think???
