DIY Magnetic Leather Pen Holder

by Sahana
I shared an idea of how to add a pen holder to any notebook two years ago.I still use the same notebook and also the pen holder for my blog planning. I also have several small notebooks for different tasks which I carry around the house or sometimes to the library and other places. Most of the time, I will sit down to write something only to find out that I missed taking the pen along with the notebook.So I thought I will make a magnetic pen holder which can be carried along with any notebook or binder.As this the "Back to school" season, I thought this would be perfect to share it during this time of the year.
Cut two leather strips measuring 1.5" X 7.5" and a small strip measuring 2" X 1.5".Round the edges using scissors.
To maintain an even rounded edge on both the sides, fold the strip and use binder clips to hold them together and shape the other edge using scissors.
Take a small piece of duct tape covering the size of magnets you are using. Glue the magnet to the inside of the inner piece of leather strip as shown below.
To know how I completed the rest of this pen holder and how to draw the design on leather using the wood burning tool, visit my blog.
Hope you like this simple leather project. This pen holder is perfect for planners, notebooks and binders too. So you need not be going to school to make this. This tutorial is suitable for anyone who uses pen and papers ;) You can make this pen holder using any material of your choice.I preferred leather for its looks and durability.
