Tried it Tuesday: Quick Letter Pads

I've been a little absent from the blogging world lately... our first Common Assessments are this week and I'm trying to get everything wrapped up before the end of the trimester. Plus, we've had a few last minute conferences and extended conferences over email before our report cards are due next week. So, I've been really trying to get everything up on the blog so all I have do is hit submit. We'll see how it works out this week :) I really love blogging - it's my me time and time to check out everyone else's great ideas but I also need to clean my dining room, finish up the dishes, and find some upper level nonfiction related extension activities for my gifted students. It's a little overwhelming for a Tuesday!
So this week, I'm linking up with Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper to share about a time saving and stress free product for Tried it Tuesday :) I've recently purchased the Art Skills Quick Letter Pads in black and white and metallic. I'm in love with them! They are letter post-it notes in convenient little pads. I used them for letter on several posters and signs hanging around my room. Although I love my Cricut, these letters were uniform, easy to adhere, and BAM! it was finished! I also used the metallic letters on my explorer station posters last month. The pack is a little pricey at about $5.99 (I bought mine at the grocery store) but you get several of each letter to use and they are already sticky. They also come in neon colors as well as a "Jumbo" size.

Here's what my pack looks like:

Here's mine in use:

If you're looking to create words or posters quick - these little post-it letters are your friend! They look nice and save you lots of time! Caution: You will want to laminate your finished product because they are thin like post-it notes and not quite as sticky as actual post-its.

What cool new things have you tried?


  1. I will have to check these out. My pod has a Cricut, but I have no earthly idea of how to use it. People wander in often and ask for help. It's probably the only piece of technology I completely stay away from.

  2. I have never seen these and I need to find some. I hate cutting out letters and titles - I usually end up making a bubble around the title I printed out : )

  3. I have never heard of these! Genius!! I have a Cricut too, but these would be super fast. Thanks for sharing and for the tip on laminating!! :)
