3D pen note holder

My son asked me a while ago to make him a note holder. You know for those small square papers you use to write notes on. So I took out my 3D pen and made him one. It was not very sturdy but it was cute and he uses it on his desk at home.

The other day my daughter asked me to do the same for her. So here’s how I did it.

First I measured the notes and drew a square just slightly bigger then them on a plain piece of paper.

Next I decided how high I wanted the box, I made sure it could hold at least a full new package of notes. Then I drew on the same paper a rectangle the size of the notes and the height I wanted. I wanted to try making it a little fancier for my daughter then I did for my son. So I made the top of the sides with fancy waves. (I used a stencil I have from my scrap-booking supplies.)

She chose the color purple for her holder. As I didn’t have a lot of the plastic in purple I did the bottom in black (no one will really see it as the notes cover it)

Next Using the 3D pen I drew the outlines and then I drew a grid to fill in. The fancy waves didn’t really work for me, in the end you don’t really see them. I think they would have to be more pronounced then I did and you will need to have a better working relationship with the 3D pen then I do.


Once I finished one side I removed it from the paper so I could do 2 more. I only needed 3 as I wanted it open in the front.

Next I took the purple plastic and attached the sides and bottom. That was actually the easier part.


And then it was finished. This is a relatively easy project for a teen or adult to do.
