Note Holder

by Beate Johns

Create a small box to hold single note sheets.


  • Scor-Pal™, or other scoring tool
  • Paper Cutter
  • 7 5/8" square of cardstock
  • Copy Paper
  • Scor-Tape™, or other strong adhesive
  • Corner Rounder
  • Stamps , Your Next Stamp Happiness used here
  • Ribbon
  • Embellishments


  1. Step 1

    Score the 7 5/8" square of cardstock at 1" and 2" on each side of the square.

  2. Step 2

    Cut off the scored outer squares, leaving only one on each side as a glue tab. Pre-fold all your score lines.

  3. Step 3

    Punch a hole with your 3/4" circle punch in the center on one side.

    This will create an indent that will make it easier to take the note sheets out of the box.

  4. Step 4

    Add Scor-Tape™ to each of the glue tabs.

  5. Turn box base over and add Scor-Tape on each of the outer flaps.

  6. Step 5 (Optional)

    Stamp the lower of the 1" side strips to decorate your notepad holder walls.

  7. Step 6 (Optional)

    Take the adhesive liner off the sides of the box that has the glue tabs attached and fold down.

  8. Step 7 (Optional)

    Take the liner off the glue tabs and adhere them to the neighboring sides to create the box shape.

  9. Fold the remaining sides down to finish the box.

  10. Step 8

    Add adhesive to the end of the ribbon.

  11. Adhere the ribbon to the center of the box.

  12. Step 9

    Cut copy paper into 3 1/2" squares.

  13. Step 10 (Optional)

    Round the corners of your note paper.

  14. Step 11

    Stamp your paper squares.

  15. Step 12

    Place your paper squares into your box and cut your ribbon to size.

  16. Attach a small embellishment to the ribbon to keep it laying flat on your paper.

    The ribbon will help you pull up the paper pieces easier.

  17. Step 13

    Your note holder is finished.



  1. Close it up
    If you are planning on giving the note holder as a gift, create a box top out of acetate to keep the note sheets inside the box. Take a 5 3/4" square of acetate and score 1" on each side to create the lid.

    Hint: If you are planning to add a lid, don't add embellishments to the side of the boxes.

Thank you so much for your help, I love your little box, I have made a few for my friends and we did it as a project at the Ladies meeting from Unity Miss. Baptist church. We all thank you and may God bless you!
