Momenta and Helmar!

Hey, everyone!  I'm on the Momenta Blog today sharing a fun project using Momenta AND Helmar! We are in the throes of getting ready for back to school here and I wanted to make a fun and easy project for the kids' teachers to give them at open house. As a teacher myself, I know how much it means when a student brings a gift and that it's always a huge bonus when the gift is useful!

So, I started with a 4"x6" acrylic picture frame and inserted a fun piece of Momenta paper matted w/ matching cardstock. Then, I put another piece of patterned paper at about 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" matted with cardtock on top of the acrylic. I normally worry about adhering paper to acrylic, but not this time- with the Helmar tape runner, I had no doubt that it would stay put!

I added a ribbon and secured the bow with some Helmar 450! Then added the "just a note" stamped cardstock and simply peeled the backing from the sticky notes and stuck them right down. When the sticky notes run out, the teacher can just put a new pad right where the old one was- so it's re-fillable! The kids wrote a note to their teacher and I stuck that to the back and the project is done and ready do be delivered at open house next week!

Here's a front view of one of them:

And, here is a side view! You can see how it will sit easily on the teacher's desk without taking up too much room, ready to be used!

And, here they are for their group photo! One for each teacher!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying the Momenta & Helmar event as much as I am!
