Pinterest Project – Notebook Pen Holder

I don’t know about you, but I love Pinterest and use it everyday to collect ideas and inspiration.  From time to time I would like to share some projects with you that I made using tutorials found on Pinterest.

Today’s Pinterest project is my notebook pen holder that I made using the instructions on Katie’s site Made to be a Momma.

I like to take this notebook with me to church but can never manage to hang onto my pen.  A purse would be a good spot to keep my pen but I don’t want to lug one more thing since I feel like caring a kid, a diaper bag, a clarinet case, a stack of Bibles and a notebook is more than enough.  Usually my pen would end up lost in the car or in the bottom of the diaper bag and I didn’t have it on hand to take notes during the service.

When I stumbled across this pen holder I knew it would be the perfect solution to my lost pen saga!  What made this project even better is that it was quick, easy and only required a scrap of fabric!

Be sure to click HERE to see Katie’s tutorial.  The one change I made to my pen holder was to add an inch to my fabric length; allowing for more fabric to fold in on the ends.  Both of our notebooks were 8 1/4″ and while she cut strips that were 8″ x 2″, my strips were 9 1/4″ x 2″.

After I finished my notebook pen holder I came across this notebook cover  on The Ribbon Retreat with a built in pen holder.  I love the colorful fabric!

  1. Love the fabric you chose. And I totally understand the not wanting one more thing to carry. I have to carry a purse that goes across my body just so I won’t lose it between carrying things for all the kids and my own stuff. Someday it won’t be like that and we will miss it. Anyway, thanks for the links and inspiration!

    • Ha ha…yes, sometimes I wish I had a few more hands to hold everything! But I wouldn’t trade these days with my sweet little guy for anything. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love the notebook cover with pen holder!

    I also have the pen holder tutorial on pinterest!! Keep meaning to make it..one of these days 🙂

    Visiting from the You Made It and Love It linky.

  3. I love this idea Emma. I love to write and I have several notebooks going at one time. This is a great way to not have to rummage for a pen when I have a brainstorm.

  4. Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream’s City of Links last Friday! I loved this post so much that I chose it to be featured for this weeks party. 🙂 Go grab a button you deserve it!
