When addressing envelopes or writing notes with an old-fashioned ink pen, use a blotter to rest the pen and absorb drips. This felt version is simple to make.
Needle and thread
Use pinking shears to cut felt (dark colors hide ink best) into four graduated circles, ranging from 1 3/4 inches to 3 3/4 inches in diameter; stack with the smallest on top, and sew them together with a button in the center.
