Matchstick Notepads

Today's project is small and simple. These little notepads fit just about anywhere and make a great party favor. I generally keep one in my purse so I always have a scrap of paper when I need one. They are also small, so you can use scraps of card stock or a thicker scrap booking paper to make them. The opened size of this notebook is 5 1/2" x 2 1/4", and the paper measures 2 1/4" x 2".

This was a great rainy day project for today, they are colorful and quick. You can easily make a lot of them at one time, and if you happen to have a little paper cutter available it is even faster because you can get even straight cuts without a ruler and scissors or Xacto knives. Also, by securing the paper with a staple instead of glue it has very little mess and cleanup.
