Notepad Holder with Card by Marie Berquist




This is such a simple project and makes an amazing gift.

Here are the supplies you need:

12” x 12” Cardstock

Coordinating Cardstock for Trim (optional)

1 ½” x 5 ½” Cardboard

Brad/Embellishment for Top

Scoring Tool

Border Punch/Die (optional)

Hole Punch (optional)

The easiest way to create this cute holder is to use a piece of double sided cardstock.

Here is a template showing the score marks you will make.

I find it easier to score the two shorter lines first and pre-fold to the inside.

This way I can line up one side and easily score the remaining two lines 1 ½” apart and fold these to the outside.

Then you will want to re-open and adhere the cardboard strip in the center between the score marks


 If you want to add a border, adhere it on the inside along the edges of the two triangles.  Now you can fold in both sides and then fold the opposite sides to the outside.

You will want to adhere the top corners together.  You can simply tape together or you can punch a hole through both and use a brad to add an embellishment.   On this holder I taped the top together and added a flower on each side.

Now all you have to do is make a set of 5 ½” x 4 ¼” cards and decorate a small notepad to tuck in on both sides.  It is also fun to decorate a pen and tuck it in next to the notepad or attach it to the bottom section between the two sides.

For the notepad holder I shared in the blog hop, I used a solid greenpiece of cardstock for the holder base.  Then I used coordinating decorative paper to cover the triangular sections on both sides.

For the top I used Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" to adhere the two top corners together and added my strawberry image on both sides.

This makes a great gift and you can use it to tuck other things in the sides besides cards and a notepad.  Try using a winter theme and tucking in hot chocolate packages (you can even decorate the packages). How about making a mini holder and tucking in tea bags?

Here is my version with a tea bag – I couldn’t resist trying this with a 7” square of cardstock and the Zendoodle Tea set.
