Easel Sticky Note Holders for Teachers

LEARN TO MAKE FUN EASEL STICKY NOTE HOLDERS FOR YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER TO SHOW THEM HOW MUCH YOU APPRECIATE THEM

It is that time of year to show the teachers some love and appreciation! Well, we really should be doing that much more than just Teacher Appreciation Week but that’s another conversation.

I came across something similar to this design while browsing Pinterest during Back to School season and it stuck in my brain. Now, the version I saw was not reusable. You just glued the sticky notes to the inside of the easel and that was that.

Well, I wanted something teachers could reuse. So, I designed mine with an insert that has a slit to place the sticky notes into. When your teacher is done with the pad of sticky notes, he or she can replace it with another pad.

I have included two designs. An apple and a pencil.

Attach your cardstock to the Cricut StandardGrip Mat. I prefer to use a brayer to ensure the material adheres properly to the mat.

To load the mat into the machine, press the double arrows button. Do make sure that the mat is positioned under the mat guides.

Make sure to only add glue or adhesive to the area above the slit and along the edges. You want to leave the middle area free of glue.

Adhere the insert to the inside of the easel layer. I placed mine roughly two inches from the bottom.

Now, add glue or adhesive to the area below the score line on the front of the easel layer.

  1. This is so cute. Do you have a video for this? I downloaded the apple one but the score marks were in the SVG as a cut file so I am unsure where to make the final folds. I can’t tell from the photos here.
