One of my many favorite memories of my dad are of when my mom and I would go hang out with him at work for a little bit on the weekends. I’d get so bored so he’d throw my mom the office keys and I’d go to town “creating”. I’d draw pictures on the legal pads, make copies in the copier and go crazy with the Post-it Notes. I’d write one word on each Post-it Notes and leave a trail of sentences behind. It was such fun and I’m so glad those memories were brought back to me when I heard that Post-it Brand is now celebrating their 35th anniversary!
Those awesome memories are from a pretty long time ago, when Post-it Notes only came in that classic canary yellow color! But today, the Post-it Note World of Color collection is available in a rainbow of colors, shapes and even sizes. And there’s more than just Post-it Super Sticky Notes too. Post-it Brand offers Flags, Tabs and even a Post-it Plus App! So here’s a fun timeline about Post-it Products.

So there are definitely Post-it Products out there for basically any need and I personally use them daily. I jot little notes for myself, make lists for the store, leave notes in the kids’ lunches and clutter my desk with reminder notes. My husband hates that last one!
Here’s a Post-It Note Fun Fact: There are over 1,000 Post-it Products today, in more than 150 countries.
In celebration of Post-It Brand and 35 years of providing organization tools for the home and office, I decided to show you how to make a DIY Bulletin Board so we can all stay a little more organized!
DIY Bulletin Board
You’ll need the following supplies to make your own DIY Bulletin Board:
- cork board – I used a 12×12 square board
- Duct Tape
Step 1. Cut a strip of?Duct Tape just a bit larger than your cork board. Apply half of it on one side of the cork board.
Step 2. Trim edges flush against the edge of the cork board. Fold over to secure on backside.
Step 3. Repeat on bottom, then each side.
