Video: 4x6 Notebook with Pen

I love making Post-it Note holders with pens. Recently I have made notebook holders with pens and I love how they turned out. Everyone I share them with, loves these notebooks too. So I wanted to share them with you also. I made a video that shows in detailed how to create it. Scroll down past the video to see 3 different styles with measurements of how to make them.

These amazing Digi Stamps are from Lori Boyd. They were so much fun to color with Copic Markers. Then I cut them out and glued them down with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive. Then I accented them with Glossy Accents.
Boy: Puddle Jumper Cole
Girl: Puddle Jumper Gabbi
Check out more of her Digi Stamps HERE.

Post-it Note Holder w/ Pen
Post-it: 3" x 3"
Cover: 7 3/8" x 3 1/4"
Score: 3 1/8", 3 1/2", 3 7/8"
Cut 2 slits 1" apart to hold Mini Pen (from Staples)

4" x 6" Notebook w/ Pen (Video)
Sketchbook: 4"x6" (from Staples)
Cover: 9 5/8" x 6 1/8"
Score:  5", 4 1/2", 4 1/8"
Cut 2 slits 1" apart to hold R.S.V.P style pen (from Staples)
Score every 1/8" along pen opening to help it bend evenly.
Note: the score marks are 3/8" and 1/2" to make a larger opening for the larger pen. If using a MINI Pen score 3/8" and 3/8" apart and trim off extra in length. These numbers are just guides to give you an idea of how to make it.

Notepad size: 7 1/2" x 3 1/2" (found in most dollar sections with magnet on back, some sizes will be different)
Cover: 8 3/8" x 7 5/8"
