I absolutely love sticky notes, every shape, size, and color. Can’t seem to have enough of them! Get them every year in my Christmas stocking too. (thanks Sweetie) I leave my Sweetie notes all the time, in his lunch, wallet, and hide them in places where I know he will find them. Even though I have the most colorful array stock of sticky notes, I feel that something is missing. Let’s see what that could be…hmmmm: Bright Colors – check, Different Sizes – check, my perfect penmanship – check, personalization – missing.
Now that I know what is missing, I went about trying to figure out how to personalize them. Hmmm, this is going to be a tough one, until I happened to look at a piece of cardstock I had sitting on my desk with a bunch of sticky notes stuck on it. (when I do some internet searches, I always write down things on sticky notes, then end up having notes everywhere, so I started sticking them on a piece of cardstock and placed them in a binder so I knew where to find them) Well, that got me thinking… and I opened up a Microsoft Word document and created text boxes the exact same size as my sticky notes. Brilliant! So, what I did next was to printout a “template” of my Word Doc on cardstock, then placed or stuck my 3 x 3 sticky notes directly on those text boxes, and put that back into the printer. Then, I typed in what I wanted in the text boxes in the Word doc with whatever font I wanted, and when I was done, clicked print.
What you end up with are the cutest sticky notes in town, and lovingly personalized for your special someone! I know that this seems like a lot of work, but I did all the work for you, so all you need to do is open up the Microsoft Word Doc, print the template out on cardstock, type in what you want, and click print. Easy enough, right? If you should have any problems or questions, let me know and I will be more than happy to assist you in personalizing your sticky notes!
