Write On: Notepad Organizer for Pencils and Pens


When it comes to capturing inspiration, making plans, or sharing sketches and ideas, makers and notebooks go hand-in-hand. Whether you’re a drawer of systems, an artist who’s never without a sketchpad, an obsessive organizer, or even a creative kid, having a solid system for keeping all of your most frequently used writing and art tools together and within easy reach can make a DIY lover’s life a whole lot easier. That’s why I’m so inspired by Doodlecraft’s simple and smart tutorial for making your own DIY notebook organizer for pencils, markers, and pens.



These handy little holders slip right around the covers of most notebooks, allowing you to tote your paper and your writing utensils in one easy package.

This tutorial is compatible with most standard notebook sizes, but if you happen to be working with a small or irregularly-sized pad of paper, you can always use the same method to create an organizer in a custom size.

If you have an artist, maker, or crafter in your life, you’ll definitely want to keep this project in mind for future handmade gifts!

Now that you’ve got your notebook all sorted out, perhaps it’s time to bring some order to all of those in-progress and upcoming projects? Learn how to make your own DIY Project Organizer right here on Make!
