The Giving Tree is a sticky memo pad that is shaped like the trunk of a tree, playfully showing the essence of paper as it is. The Giving Notes are basically a set of sticky notes that look like the cross section of a tree, and they use a plastic (slightly more rubbery) tree stump as the dispenser. The back side of these sticky notes have about a 1/3″ arc of adhesive on the back topside of each sheet, and that is also how the pads stick to the tree stump dispenser. When the pad and dispenser are put together it looks pretty cool. The bottom of the tree stump is slightly rubbery so it wont slide really easily on your desk, but it does tend to move around a bit.
