DIY STICKY NOTES w/ FREE PRINTABLE



Happy Friday everyone! I hope you guys are as ready for the weekend as I am! I have a fun filled weekend plan. My big girl turns four this weekend so we are throwing a shin-dig here at the house. A little Fall fun. A fire, s'mores, and wienie roast! I'm hoping for a little cool weather so I can bring out the sweaters and leggings.

So this week we talked a bit about dressing up our planners with personal stickers and colorful pens. I wanted to share another tutorial on how to DIY YOUR OWN STICKY NOTES. Now if you're not a planning addict no worries you can still use this to create some awesome sticky notes for your calendar or bulletin board. Or anycase to just have some cute stationery lying around when needed.

First things first is I created a new project in Photoshop. 9" x6"'', 300 ppi, RGB Color Mode. This will allow you to have two columns and three rows when making six 3'' x 3'' sticky notes. Draw a straight line at intervals of  3'' down and across. These will be your cut lines. Next you can add clip art, text, backgrounds, etc. CREATE YOUR OWN MAGIC! You can make them all the same or each one different. BE CREATIVE and HAVE FUN!

Should look a little something like this...just play around with it until you love it!


I like to transfer my projects to a 8.5'' x 11'' project board that way I know what it will look like on printed paper. You can transfer it by selecting all, hold shift+ctrl+c, this will select all and copy the entire board. Paste it onto your new paper size board. Add additional text or fun stuff if you want too!

Like this....


Next, just print them out! I recommend using a good resolution so the colors pop!

{sorry about the blurry image...it was sunrise and the lighting was horrific...but in any light you get my point, right?}
I just cut and trim the notes to size.


Now there maybe a better tutorial out there that shows you how to make a sticky note pad. But here is how I do mine. I simple keep the loose notes in a little pile on my desk and when I want to use one I grab my glue tape and stick-i-fi the top of the back. Works just like a traditional sticky note! And holds a lot better. You can still reposition or remove it later if needed.

Like this...


And place it where I want it.


And ta da...personalized sticky notes! Easy Peasy!



Let me know if you make these and send me some pics of the ones you create at Instagram #thehouseonhillbrook. What do you like to use sticky notes for? Are you a sticky hoarder? Where do you like to sticky shop?
