{Father's Day Gift Idea} Pocket Square Notebook

Kids love making things that Dad can bring with him to work. And I think Dads like it to. Unfortunately, most offices and sales jobs aren't going to let him wear a puffy painted "Best Dad Ever" shirt to work. This project, on the other hand, is super work appropriate. Upcycle an old tie that might be stained or otherwise unsuitable to wear or pick up an inexpensive one from a thrift store and transform it into this great notebook that looks like a pocket square.


  • Tie
  • Hot glue gun and glue
  • Small notebook (avoid those with wire bindings)
  • Scissors
  • Binder clips
  • Saw
