DIY Post It Note Holder

Make these cute handmade post-it note holders for yourselves or gift it to someone with a thoughtful note!

I love making little personalized gifts that cost next to nothing, especially when it’s as versatile as post-it notes.

I mean, everyone uses post-it notes. Even my kids love having them around to do random doodles here and there.

As I was designing these, it occurred to me they’re kind of like all the card’s I’ve designed. So then I decided to repurpose some of my card designs that I thought would do well in this square card-like configuration.

What do you think? Well, I think they’re pretty darn cute.

It gets even better, these post-it covers are super easy to make.

Materials for DIY Sticky Note Dispensers

Cardstock – As you can see, I used a variety of different colored cardstock I had around. Here are some of my favorite brands:

  • Assorted Starter Pack – Basic assorted colors, great starter pack, perfect weight for most papercraft projects
  • Cricut Joy Insert Card Packs – You don’t have to use these with the Cricut Joy, they are nice material kids for cardmaking.
  • Cardstock Warehouse Brand on Amazon – I love the quality of all the matte-colored cardstock with Cardstock Warehouse. It is my go-to brand for individual matte colors that I might need
  • Poptone Assorted Variety Pack – This is the perfect peppy assortment of colors of heavy cardstock. It’s a heavy cardstock assortment with colors I actually use frequently for cardmaking.
  • Seasonal Assorted Variety Pack – This is a slight variation on the Poptone assortment and has a quite few neutrals that complement almost any accent color.
  • Stardream Metallics Line – For paper crafts, the Stardream line is the go-to for a metallic shimmer finish. It is the perfect sheen to make any project pop. The core is also colored is which hard to find for metallic paper.

Glue – I have a few favorites for cardmaking, the key is to use glue that minimizes paper warping.

Post it notes – I guess this is pretty obvious. I love this limited colors edition set, there are so many pretty colors in there.

Cutting Machine – I use a Cricut. Check out my recommendations for Cricut machines and accessories for beginners for more info.

Tips on assembling post it note covers

Step 1: Cut out all your cardstock from the templates

Step 2: Score and fold the cover base

I added some score lines in with my template set but you will have to manually set those lines to “scoring” if you are using the Cricut to make the cards.

I personally hate scoring with the Cricut so I just do it by hand with a ruler and a scraper.

Step 3: Glue the crease down to the base of the cover

I like to just add a little glue in the crease and then hold it down in places for a few seconds. I sometimes will use a paper clip if I’m really impatient.

Step 4: Add the post-its

Take the base paper off from the post-it notepad and stick it on the inside of the cover.

Step 4: Add the additional floral layers

I like curling the top most layer of petals but that’s totally up to you.

Just glue the layers together and you’re done.

    There has to be a better way to find how to download these svg, I’ve been going in circles trying to find how to download these svg…

    1. Hi there, I have a resource library where I keep all the downloadable files. See link in menu bar. I do have plans to eventually make it more organized and user friendly but that’ll take a considerable effort on my part in terms of web development so it might be a while. :-/ I’m a one woman show here so I can’t get to everything at once. Thank you for you patience!
