Introduction: Paper Pincher!
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!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Everything Ya' Need
you will need:
1) duct tape (duck tape?)
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)
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
