Ok, so the Rhodia case is cool, but it's so big! How am I going to fit that in the pocket of my tight pants?
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!

    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 :).
