Though the text box looks curved – it isn’t actually. We created the effect by adding a special shadow at the back. In this article, you’ll learn to create the effect in a simple step by step way.

2. Completing the Sticky Note

Place it on a text box and adjust the width of the crescent to match the width of the text box. Once done, right click on the crescent and ‘send to back’. Presto! Now your text box looks curved.

To give the look of a realistic sticky note, you can fill color the rectangle with Light Yellow color and provide a Light Grey Outline.

You can use some hand writing font to write on this sticky note to give it a realistic look.
