Making It Stick

Coming up with good places to put info cards/fliers/messages isn't hard.  Hell, just about anywhere will do!  The trick, I've found, is getting them to stay put.  There often isn't a good place to tuck an info card or flier.  A number of times I'd find something that looked ideal and only end up with a bent up card and no results.  Frustrating to say the least!

Stickers concern me because I don't want to leave residue that messes up something or makes someone angry.

Post-its are awesome, but sometimes I don't have time or available hands or a pen to jot down a quick message....or at least one that is readable (juggling 2 kids and trying to write neatly while out in public....and NOT attracting massive amounts of attention....yeah, let me know when you figure that one out!).  Plus, I prefer the look of printed cards instead of handwritten notes.  More professional.  More impact (in my opinion). 

So.  Options?  I have found some.
  • Print labels, then stick them to Post-its instead of directly on the surface of whatever you're sticking it to.
  • Print directly onto Post-Its with this handy template via Pinterest
  • Restickable Glue Dots (found at most craft stores)
  • DIY restickable dots using Aleene's Tack-It Over & Over and a CD case via Pinterest (I purchased the glue with a 40% off coupon at Michaels)
  • Scotch Removeable Poster Tape (found in most stores such as Target, Walmart, etc.)
  • A craft glue stick (Won't hurt glass or metal. This is how I attach Waldorf paper stars to my windows/doors.  Residue wipes off easily with window cleaner.)
