DIY Notepad Holder Tutorial

DIY Notepad Holder Tutorial 
Hi friends here is a Handmade Notepad Holder gift idea for coffee and chocolate lovers! It is a cute project which is sturdy enough to hold a fairly thick notepad with space for a pen and closes securely with a magnetic closure!

There is also a dainty fun shaker in the dome of the cup!
These are easy to make and I think they would be a hit if you want to sell them at craft fairs and exhibitions too!

DIY Notepad Holder Tutorial 

Materials
  • Card stock
  • Pattern Paper and Stamps- optional  to decorate your cup!
  • Scoring Board- optional- otherwise use a blunt pen and scale
  • Cup shape- hand cut or use a die- I used the Crealies dies to cut cup shapes from thick card-stock. If you dont have a diecutting machine don't despair the cup shape is fairly simple to handcut too.
  • Small magnets- 2 - greatly adds to the fun element so do try to use it!
  • Good adhesive - I used UHU ;Scissors
  • Shaker elements- optional if you are adding a shaker dome or making a shaker cup
DIY Notepad Holder Tutorial 
Cut 2 cup shapes from card stock. Score and fold a 2 and 3/4 inch x 1 and 1/2 inch card piece at 1/2 inch  and 1 inch . Stick this card stock to the upper edges of the cups to connect them. This gives you a notepad holder which is 1/2 inch thick.

On the inside of the flap which will be the top flap stick a small magnet a little away from the edge as shown and cover with pattern paper. You can also hold the magnet in place with a stamped cup or other design as I did in this post : Magnetic Bookmarks Tutorial

 Now make a pocket for the notepad. Score a 6 and 1/2 x 1 and 1/2 inch card lengthwise at 1/2 and 1 inch.

Turn this and score at 2 and 1/4 inch from either end . ..ie at 2 and 1/4 and 4 and 1/4 inch marks on the scoreboard.

 Make 4 cuts along these scorelines to reach till the central 1/2 inch strip as shown below

To add the magnetic closure- place a magnet over the top flap and apply a glue drop over it.

 Firmly close the flap and press so that the magnet will stick to the pocket you created on the opposite flap

Open the flap  and stick pattern paper to secure the magnet and complete the notepad holder pocket

I created coffee themed patterns using a variety of coffee themed stamps from Crealies.


I recycled an old notebook to create the notepad for this Coffee Cup!
