If you're like me, you like to have a journal (or some sort of pen-and-paper recording capability) with you at all times. And unless you like writing in blood, you also like to have a writing implement with you. During a recent trip, I devised a quick and easy way to make a pen holder for my journal. I know there are several other Instructables that accomplish this momentous task, but this is the simplest strategy I've seen and it doesn't require altering your notebook and tools (scissors, rulers, etc.) are totally optional. Also, I like minimalist designs whenever possible, and here it's nice because the pen holder doesn't add much size to the journal.
Step 1: Materials
- Journal (Personal favorite: Moleskine)
- Pen (Personal favorite: Pilot G-2 05)
- Gorilla tape (Personal favorite: gorilla) - important to use heavy duty tape like these; packing, masking, or scotch tape won't be as durable or reliable. And gorilla tape is black so it looks great with the Moleskine!
