Amazing colors and designs with post-its, stickies, sticky notes or whatever you call them.
Bored in the office?
Tired of sticking post-it after post-it up your leg, due to mind numbing boredom as the boss (if you have one…) keeps talking, and talking, and talking, and talking, and talking.
Well put those post-its to good use. Make little pictures and stick them to your friends.
Over 50 examples of small sticky note art, crafts and pranks
Post-it Note Video Game Art
A fine example of students using tax payers' money effectively. Due to the pixelated look of the 8-bit era, post-it notes are perfect for creating your favourite video-game heroes around the office.

9. A Charizard
This guy has done a bunch of videos like this with other characters.
Why play Mario Kart when you can live it. Although, this probably takes a lot longer to load up than a Wii.
Sticky Note Art
The King, in post its – enough said.
Here's something different, why not draw on the post-its? They were designed to be written on, step up and draw on them. Get everyone in the office on-board for one large collage.

Which is an evil thing to pull on April Fools' or your last day in the office…
25. Post-it Cow
Who doesn't love cows. They're so weird. Make other animals friends for the cow and have your own Orwellian dream across the walls. Put the post-it pigs in the boss's room to show him/her he/she's the best.
26. Abstract Wall
Wallpapering made easy with not paste to deal with. You also have the ability to redecorate in an exciting array of colours. Plus, your kids can scribble across the walls without getting into too much trouble.

37. To Do
What are post-its for? Reminders and To Do lists, so why not make a giant one across the office. Someone did actually write on this massive to do list: it said ‘Eat Paint'. This is not a clever way of getting out of a meeting.
This is great.
44. Directed Perspective
This is where post-it clowning around turns into actual art. The positionings of the post-its force different perspectives on you. You believe you are seeing some kind of form, but there will always be something slightly out of order in the form. It's like re-arranging all the items on your desk into some kind of height order; one of them will be some annoying width.
45. Cyclical Perspective
Another Rebecca Murtaugh, this piece looks good enough to eat. Eating post-its is not a clever way to get out of a meeting.
46. Angry Post-Its
To advertise to others in the office that you're being picked on, because your the loser and can only communicate to others via post its. Or, put this in the boss's office and show just how crazy he makes you.
47. Boss office prank
Another one for your boss – pass it off as an elaborate prank.
51. Model Cities
A little something to do to the bosses car after a sacking. Or to your neighbour's after a ruckus BBQ they had and didn't invite you again, because they hate you.
58. Pranking a teammate
