TUTORIAL: Valentine's Neon Heart Backdrop using Post-it Notes!Friday, February 08, 2013C Riches
Call me old school, but I heart Post-It Notes. I use them to jot down notes, set reminders, bookmark pages, and label just about anything. When I came across this picture on Pinterest, I couldn't wait for the opportunity to make an eye-catching backdrop from the world's favorite sticky notes.
For this project, all you'll need are neon pink and orange Post-It Notes and a white 2 ft. x 3 ft. foam board.
Step 1: With the sticky side facing up and the sticky tab at the top, fold over the bottom,
leaving about 1/8 inch at the top. Fold over 74 pink notes, and 130 orange notes.
Step 2: Using the template as a reference,
apply a folded note flush to the bottom left corner of the foam board as shown.
Step 3: Continue to apply notes as shown until you have reach the top of the board.
Step 4: For the next column, apply notes in the reverse direction as pictured
until you've reach the top of the board.
Step 5: Continue to apply notes as shown until you've reach the end of the board.
