Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

This gift is super simple to make if you start with a cube of precut memo sheets. Still, if you have a paper cutter available, this project is perfect for using up a stack of old scrap paper.

What you'll need

  • Colored duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Memo cube pad, memo filler sheets or scrap paper cut into small squares
  • Ink stamps or Foamies craft foam, plastic bottle caps and double-sided tape
  • Ink pad

How to make it

  1. Cut a strip of duct tape that measures 2 inches longer than the height of the stack of paper you plan to use (it should be 1 1/2 inches or more). Lay the tape sticky side up on a table.

  2. Grasp the stack and tap the sides against a flat surface as you would to straighten a deck of cards, then hold it on its end and press one edge down onto the center of the tape. Wrap the tape ends over the top and bottom of the stack, pressing down firmly to bind the paper. Use more tape to cover the edge, if needed. Now, lift the top sheet of paper and cut the tape just above the second sheet so that the binding is flush with the top of the pad.

  3. If you don't already have an ink stamp, cut a fun shape from Foamies craft foam and use double-sided tape to stick it onto a bottle cap. Then use the stamp and an ink pad to print a design on the three untaped sides of the block.
