Framing a Post-It Note

Hey--so I'm a high school Eng teacher and one of my favorite students that does the cartooning for my school newspaper drew me a great little La La Land sketch on a Post-It note. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for framing something this small. It's also a little warped because of the thinness of the paper with all the ink on it. Would you glue it to cardboard first or laminate it? Any info will help! Here's the piece if you have any tips for framing or molding.

You know Walmart has these cheap little two sided glass frames. Cheap, no UV protection, and the art is in contact with the glass, but one would work perfectly.

An Acrylic magnetic photo frame maybe an option.

Hobby Lobby has 3x3, 4x4, and 5x5 ready-made frames. They're tight enough that they should hold it in there just fine without having to glue it or anything. Can't see the pic but I bet it's rad!

Thanks for the replies, guys! I've put a couple pieces in those clear magnetic frames already and I think that would be the best option too.
