Pretty Desk Memo Pad Holder

Hello friends, today I’m sharing this handy Memo Pad Holder.

Pretty Desk Memo Pad Holder

I wanted something to keep on my desk and that I can quickly jot stuff down.

I had received the Arteza scratchpad and wanted to find a way that I would use it, so I cut them down and used them in the holder.

I also added some pen holders in the back so I always have one at hand.

  1. These are beautiful Sam. Going to be making one for myself on my crafting surface! TYFS

  2. Thank you so much for this beautiful design Sam. I tried to do it and I used a shoebox for the base. I love all glittery so I used paper my friend gave me when she traveled to USA. This is not perfect so I think I would have had the inside white. Anyhow I am very happy I gave it a try and now I want to make more because I have another empty shoebox😉 I am pretty happy with my box, it light up my room 🤩 Looking forward to see your next project, you are so inspiring. Best regards 😊 Heidrun p.s. I took a picture but my technical knowledge is not very good, I don’t know how I can do it 🤔

  3. I just made this and checked the size before adding the bottom. It was too big for a 3×3 post-it pad, so I will remake the sides, perhaps 3-3/8”. Very cute and can’t wait to redo mine. Thanks for the tutorial!

  4.
