I am always hunting for sticky notes on my desk, they seem to vanish on me or it could be that my kids steal them, lol.  I also seem to be hunting for pens on my desk, maybe I have too much stuff on my desk, haha!!  With this in mind I made a sticky note holder for my desk, with a pen attached so I will have both when I need them!!  When I was thinking this through I thought to just buy some new sticky notes and glue them to the front, but then I went to go get some nice looking ones they were so expensive!!  Then I thought I have tons of paper I am sure I can figure out a way to make them myself, so I did!!
