Lets go back in time and make an old school sticky note animation... Maybe it will make us appreciate our computer animation tools a little better. What's nice about using sticky notes is that they are so thin you don't even need a light table.

1. Get a pack of blank sticky notes.

2. Create an animation using each sticky note as a frame. Be creative here!

3. Take pictures of each frame and put them together to make an animation!

4. Upload to your blog!
