    Very cute! My note cube does not have a riser (Night Owl pattern), but I could likely still find some black or red cardstock or cardboard to fill in the open area.

  2. Kim D says:

    Very cute idea! Now, I just need to use up all of my paper in my Take note cube.

    Another idea. I use the box my glass paperweight came in for paper clips. When my notes are gone, I intend to convert the box to a pencil holder….
