Martha Stewart Living, June 2002
Cut scrap paper and a piece of decorative paper about 1/2 inch larger on all sides for the cover.
Stack with cover on bottom. Fold in half, crease, and open flat. From inside, push a needle threaded with waxed twine through the center of the crease. Bring back through the crease about 1/2 inch from one end.
Pass through the center hole again, and bring up about 1/2 inch from other end of crease. Pass the needle through the center hole to complete a figure 8 of thread. Knot ends together.

Instead of writing messages on easily lost slips of paper, make notebooks to keep by the phone.
