post-it pocket knock off

aren't these new post-it pockets cute?!

yeah, well, cute has it's price because they are also expensive. i saw them at target for $14. seriously?! here is my knock-off version made for $1.04 with scrapbook paper & a sewing machine:
you will need:
2 pieces of 12x12 scrapbook paper 
paper cutter
x-acto knife
double sided tape

cut scrapbook paper into two 9.5" x 6" rectangles

using an x-acto knife, cut a triangle starting 1.5" from the top and 3/4" from each side. this will be the opening for your bills or receipts.

using a sewing machine, sew around this triangle. just for pretty :)
(if you don't sew, just skip this step)

now add your backing paper and stitch 1/4" all the way around the rectangle.
(if you don't sew, use double sided tape instead.)

a little double sided tape on the back and it is ready to stick to the fridge.

it has a way of making my bills look so much prettier!


  1. Cute! I'll let you make me some of those. I can't think of an occasion that would apply, other than Just Because :)
