I don’t know about you, but I never realised there was so much you could do with post-it notes. I was challenged by them to create three crafts or activities using their new Full Adhesive Notes, otherwise known as FAN. These notes mean you can adhere the whole note to the surface of your notebook or wall, meaning it will stay put for longer!
We are currently on a real origami and spring crafting flow so me and the boys sat down and we put our heads together and came up with the following:
These are so simple to make, all you need are the post-it notes. I decided to put together a quick video how to for the tulip head.
We decided to take some of the tulip heads that we folded and turn them into spring flavoured cards. We glued the tulip head to the card and painted in the stem with water colour paints. These would make gorgeous Mother’s Day cards or even easier cards.
Post-it note pinwheels
- Post-it Super Sticky 76mm x 76mm Full Adhesive Notes
- Fiskars Hand Punch, 1/8-Inch, Circle
- Mini Split pins(I have these 50 BRASS SPLIT PINS Paper Fasteners 25mm ~BRASS COLOUR~)
These were made the same way my two colour daffodil pinwheels were, except I used the hole punch to make a whole on every other corner and also the center (as image), so that it was easier to get the split pin through. I made sure that the adhesive was at the rear of the pinwheel so that you can stick them to things. In fact my boys went round putting them all over the house! Smart School house has a great tutorial here.
We had great fun using the post-it notes and have worked with them in the past and made a post-it note creeper and also some installation art using post it notes. If you fancy getting hold of some yourself then go on over to the Post-it UK facebook page and learn more.
