Introduction: Post It Notes

About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.
Here is a quick and easy way to make Post It Notes that work better than the real ones in my opinion. It is cheaper than buying them and you can use this method for any small notepad or you can make your own note pad. 

You will need:
1 notepad
Two sided tape, intended for hard slick surfaces. 
Or:
Re-positioning glue, intended for re-positioning on paper and cardboard.
Method:
If using the re-positioning glue:
Turn the notepad over so the back side shows.
Flip over the first page and apply the glue at the top making sure you apply it evening.
You will want about a 1" strip of glue.

If using the two sided tape:
Store it in your desk or purse and apply it to the notepad when you need it. You just need a small tab. In my opinion this works better than Post it notes with the re-positionable glue. These notes are intended to stick longer but aren't intended to stick to paper and remove easily.


Thanks for stopping by and have a super special day!

    Treasure hunts are fun and it seems you have figured out a way to make them rewarding as well!

    Good idea, Sylvia. Here there is not repositionable glue, or I have not seen it ever.
