The Pocket Notebook of course!

Step 1: Materials

All you need is a piece of graph or lined paper, a 4"X6" index card, and a stapler.

Step 2: Folding

    Thanks so much for the Pocket Mod reference! Another place you can go to for making neat stapless books (that's what we call it - no staples, glue or tape required) using online templates is Readwritethink.org. I do bookmaking workshops every year for teachers working with kids who don't like to read or write but can be turned on by bookmaking and these ideas are so helpful!

    Instead of the stapler, tear about 1/2 inch of the fold top and bottom, then tie a string around the binding. And you have space for the pen...

    I hate to say this, but I think many of us have been making these things since kindergarten (I still have some I wrote in :).
