Let's start with your notebooks. Remember my fabric notebook closures from this project? Well, like those, these closures keep your notebooks closed, securing any papers you may have to keep in them. It also holds your pen or mechanical pencil and even has a cute little charm attached.
You will need:
1" colored elastic in colors of choice amazon.com
Another neat thing about this project is you don't have to find a pen or pencil to use when you are ready to work. It's already attached to your notebook.
