Cool note holder

Good Morning! I love stamping on game pieces. It's so easy with great results. This project is perfect for everyone and small enough to go anywhere. The post it note size is 3x3. I think these would make great gifts as a note holder, but how cute to have a picture of the kids or pet. You could stamp the game piece to match the picture. You can see how to make the games pieces on SCS.

Have a great Sunday!
