DIY Notebook Pocket
What you’ll need
- plain kraft notebook
- 12 x 12 in. cardstock
- modge podge or glue
- x-acto knife
- cutting mat
- Place a piece of cardstock over the corner of your notebook. This one has chipboard covers which make for a sturdy surface. Match up the bottom left corner with bottom left corner of the notebook, and lightly mark where the paper and the notebook intersect. Repeat on the right side so that the paper makes a perfect diagonal.
- Holding the paper in place, flip the notebook over so that the paper is on the bottom.
- Firmly press the notebook cover down, and carefully cut the paper against the edge of the notebook to create a triangle.
- Apply glue to the outside edges of the triangle, and adhere to your notebook.
You now have a handy pocket to keep track of to-do lists, notes, schedules, and important papers!
