Paper Pincher!




About: PURE AWESOMENESS IN A PRE-PACKAGED BOTTLE! SAVE THE WOLVES!! THEY ROCK MY SOCK!! (i'm only wearing one... XD) ... hand over the ham... back away slowly... *escapes silently*

Hello! this is my first 'ible, so i decided to make something completely new! (if something similar to this already exists, please tell me because i have no knowledge of it.) if you are like me and think that stick-notes are over-rated, this is for you. this is a little booklet (pocket sized) that pinches paper in-between the two covers securely so that you can pull it out and write on it. sticky notes are too small to work with, (at least I think so...) so this is the awesome alternetive! (please post!) this is entered in the pocket sized contest so VOTE FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you know you want too!

Step 1: Everything Ya' Need

you will need:

1) duct tape (duck tape?)
2) scissors
3) plenty of letter-sized paper you don't mind sacraficing
4) 1 floppy baseball card sleeve (you can get this at a trading card retailer)
5) ruler

Step 2: Cut the Paper

take a stack of paper the size of your choice (not too small, though) and measure a rectange 9cm X 11cm on the side of the paper. (you probably want to mark this with a pencil!) cut it out.

Step 3: Duct Tape Time!

take the duct tape and completely cover the pieces of paper on the top of the cut stack and the bottom. then, take a piece of duct tape the size of the edge of the stack with about 1/2 an inch ecsess on either end and have it connect either cover, like a spine on the stack. then, push the ecsess down on the top and bottom and cut the triangle flaps off. (see pic 2.) that was the hardest part! congratulations!

Step 4: Add the Card Sleeve

now put the card sleeve on the middle of the front cover. tape it to the cover, but don't seal the opening on top!

Step 5: Happy Pinching!

now, put your pencil in the pocket, and the paper between the two covers is completely sealed in, but with a pull will slip out for your note making convenience. happy pinching!

Step 6: My Awesome Pincher!!!

i recently made mine completely AWESOME! i stuffed it full of everything i could possibly need... and it still fits in my pocket! check it out! it's awesome! i give credit to the "always have duct tape in your pocket" instructable for the card-duct tape thing. it was just too good to leave out! :D

    welll, JUST because you voted for mine... :) I had many other ibles in mind to vote for. and I could only imagine how it feels to not get any votes. voted. :D and 5 stars? just being just :D

    huh. it turns out you and I have the same number of votes now! (4).... hahaha :D oh and a typo in my previous comment - just being just is actually "just being nice".. i dunno how that "just" got there. XD

    hehe... i screwed mine (watch) up by changing the time and i can't get it back too normal... hehe... o_o" WOW! that makes 2 people who have _Mr._ in their name! wierd? maybe...

    well, "bricoleur" was taken, and i wanted that name so bad, so i just put mr. not fully my intention :D. I've switched to a timex expedition (watch), but the top resin casing fell off. darnit. all my watches have bad luck i guess? hahaha

    haha! me too... lmost every watch i've ever owned has fallen victim to either messed up settings or the washing machine... (don't ask how) :P

    You always use capitals and exclamation points. You seem really excited. I just think it's funny. You seem like a kid(not in a bad way, I wish I was still 8) Interesting instructable by the way. You seem a lot like my friend mack.

BUT I really am excited most of the time! :D (all my friends have told me at LEAST once that I'm weird!) but yeah I am actually 13 my Dad told me to choose "hide my age" on my profile for "security reasons", but OH WELL! :)

    Hehe, y'know...
    You can get rich real quick with a stupid idea...
    Like the... The piece of plastic that holds the bread bag!
    It might seems stupid (It seems ==") but they sell it 2$/1000 clip and they are the only one doing this (bread clips) in the world

    -yeah yeah last week i went to Tokyo to buy an old warehouse for my new factory...
    -Oh what are you selling?....
    -Bread clips...
