DIY matchbook notebook

26 Aug

CONFESSION: I buy too many postcards.

I’ve found a few uses, other than just sticking a stamp on them, that I will be sharing over the next couple of weeks. Here is a simple matchbook-stlye notebook. It’s the perfect pocket sized notebook to jot down a daily to-do list or other short notes.

Supplies:

postcard

paper

scissors

stapler

Cut paper to size. Slightly smaller than the width of the card by half the height minus 1/2 inch. My postcard was 4 1/2 inch by 6 1/2 inch so I cut my paper to 4×3.

Fold base of postcard up about 1/2 inch.

Place stack of paper under the fold and staple it. Since it is wider than a traditional matchbook, I stapled it twice.

Fold the top down over the paper and slip under the bottom flap to close.
