This is a recycled craft that the kids can make for dad on his special day (with a little help from mom). It is made from a french fry container from McDonald's.
- McDonald's french fry container
- light card stock
- glue (white glue, hot glue, or rubber cement)
- paper punch
- paper cut to size for notes
- pen or pencil
- Sharpie (any color)
- Cut a piece of light card stock to cover the printing on the french fry container. Use photo as a guide. I cut mine a wee bit smaller than the container, so it is bordered in red.
- Decorate the card stock by printing "Notes" across the top. You can decorate it with stickers, or draw pictures such as flowers or rainbows, if you like.
- Punch a hole at the center top as you see in the photo to hang the note holder.
- Glue the card to the front with any glue you like. Just a few dots of hot glue at the corners would work well, and adhere quickly.
- Add a pen or pencil and cut some paper to fit in the pocket for writing notes.

Ooh, I love that, thanks for sharing!
These would make great Christmas gifts for teachers; the kids can make it themselves. Best of all, they are quick and inexpensive to create. The 4x6 inch frames can be found at most dollar stores.
Approximate Time: About 30 minutes
- 4 x 6 acrylic frame
- scrapbook paper
- scrap pieces of ribbon
- sticky notes
- double stick tape
- craft glue
- Use the paper insert from the frame as a pattern to cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit the frame.
- Insert scrapbook paper into frame.
- Apply two strips of double stick tape to the back of the sticky notes and press in place on the frame.
- Cut a scrap piece of ribbon 5 1/4 inches long and glue around frame near the top.
- Create a rosette from a gathered piece of ribbon. (I created one from a 7-inch piece of 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon. Simply fold the ribbon in half lengthwise and hand sew a gathering stitch along the long unfolded edge. Pull the thread to gather up the ribbon, stitch the ends together, and tie off the thread.)
- Glue a rhinestone, button, or other embellishment to the center of the rosette.
