I made these to give for Christmas. Just mixing them into baskets I've made of candies and handmade aprons and handmade reusable sandwich bags... ect ect! Came up with them the other day. The latch is ribbon that goes over a button to hold them closed. I cut some paper to size and tied the paper on through button holes. Then used a paper clip that holds the paper flat while writing. This is good to keep mental notes, get a grocery list together ect. They are small... like only 1" around and 3-4" wide. They fit right into a purse, or pocket. And if you need, so you don't lose your pen... it wraps right around a pen and slips where you need to keep it on the go. Pretty nifty, I keep one in my purse now too.
