Inkling: scratch paper booklets

You may have noticed if you follow my blog that I have a security envelope paper obsession.


I love making things out of the beautifully patterned paper that is normally tossed in the recycling bin.


I’m also forever jotting down notes and often find myself with out a piece of paper in my purse.


So, I whipped up some little scratch paper booklets that I can throw in my purse.


I used leftover cardstock folded in half to create the booklet covers and a few sheets of security envelope paper for the insides.


A micro-hole punch and piece of twine hold it all together.


Now, when I remember something I can jot it down.


Do you have a system for jotting down notes? I used to carry a day runner but now my calendar is on my computer and synced to my phone. Besides, there are some things I like to keep low-tech – like scratch paper.


Thanks for visiting!

  5. These are delightful. There is something rewarding in writing out a list and I would love my little lists on such a pretty little scratch pad. Thanks! Oh, I have tons of paper to use up too...

  6. Wonderful simple and eye-catching! My room mate makes handmade notebooks and agendas so I know how gentle this work is :)

  7. These are precious, Carolyn. I would have never put the twine with those prints, and I love the look.

  9. Very cute :) My son has a box of scratch paper that he doesn't care for because of the print on one side. If I put something like these together for him with the blank side up he might actually use them!

  11. Question: What size do you cut your paper and do you just disregard the address label size?
