* Matchbook notepads

Posted on July 25th, 2003 by maitreya. Filed under Inspiration.

I was at a really cute gift store in Soho today called Daily 235. Among many other things, they had these great, brightly colored, tiny Iota notebooks like matchbooks. The best thing about them was that instead of boring, normal notepaper inside, there was miniature first-grade learn-to-write paper! It was even on newsprint, just like in elementary school.


I found an instruction site on how to make one, not that it would be hard to figure out.

    When I was going to grade school, I remember using this kind of paper. The only difference was that in the top left hand corner was a picture of an icream cone with 2 scoops of ice cream different colors from one another. The teacher would always say take out your ice cream paper kids. If only I can find a ream of that paper that would be wonderful. any suggestions would be nice, thanks.
