Never underestimate the power of simple office supplies.

In addition to projects made WITH post-it notes, lots of people like to make art ON post-it notes. Here are a few practitioners:
Sticky Note Theatre
P.I.P.
Post-it Theatre - flip books
Savage Chickens - cartoons on sticky notes
Entering Turtle Land
Claustrophobia and B-Boys Pimping from NAKEDGREMLIN!

How must Bill Watterson feel when bereft fans create an 8' by 25' tribute to Calvin and Hobbes? Not moved enough to resurrect the strip, unfortunately.

When you mentioned the power of office supplies, I thought you were going to be telling us how to kill a man with a paperclip mjjj, but this is far groovier on reflection.

Next Tip: Re-shingle your home, garage, and driveway in soothing pastel! And for Cinco de Mayo, why not decorate your town’s water tower to resemble a festive piñata! [These and more great tips brought to you by 3M, the makers of POST-it(R) Brand notepads.]

I like it, but all that wasted paper makes me a little uncomfortable.
