Commercial sticky notes are handy for posting reminders around your office and home. The notes typically come in bright colors, stick firmly to any smooth, flat surface and peel off cleanly, with no residue left behind. Rather than buying sticky notes, you can make your own with scraps of paper and a special glue stick.

Things You'll Need

  • Highlighter (optional)
  • Restickable adhesive glue stick
  • Scraps of paper

Cut paper to the desired size and write your note.

Highlight the paper or writing to make the note more visible and more like a commercial sticky note.

Turn the paper over and swipe the restickable adhesive glue stick over the top edge.

Stick the paper on a flat, smooth surface. It will peel off without leaving residue.
