I woke up this morning feeling all creative, so it must be the perfect time to have a go at doing something different with the new (FAN) full adhesive Post-it Notes. Why you ask? Well, Post-it kindly sent me over a few packs and challenged me to think of something inventive to use them for. The new Post-it’s, are adhesive everywhere apart from an edge, making it possible to do things you couldn’t usually do with the original Post-its.
First up, I wanted to add a little spring to my twig tree, which lives in my living room. There has been glorious sunshine in the UK for the past few days, and there are signs of new life everywhere. So with this in mind I thought I would use the Post-it in different sizes to replicate blossom on a cherry tree.
I think it adds something to the tree, I wonder if I could add something for each of the seasons? Hmmm…
Next up, I wanted try cutting a shape out of the Post-it notes and making bunting. I thought this might work well, as it really demonstrated that the whole of the post it was sticky, and not just the top section:
I used a template, and set to work. This is in my eldest daughters bedroom.
Some of the heart post-its I used for the bunting as a wall decoration, and the rest I used on her pin board so she could add reminders for herself. I think it looked quite effective. Even though they are fully adhesive, they are still simple to separate.
Finally after writing THIS post about my blackboard paint wall, I sadly realised that the chalk pens actually wouldn’t allow me to erase them, when I wanted to write something different. So they were a big fail for my shopping list reminder.
So my final suggestion to use them for was to stick them on the wall and use them to jot items down so I didn’t forget.
I added them in groups of 5 sheets, so they should last me a while. They don’t mark the walls either so perfect.
