Materials

  • 12- by 18-inch sheet of craft foam
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided tape
  • Duct tape
  • Small carabiner
  • Pad of sticky notes

Instructions

Forget-Me-Knob - Step 1

1. From the craft foam, cut out the pieces as shown in the diagram.

2. Line up the tops of the front and back panels and stick them together with double-sided tape. Stack the inner pocket on top so that it aligns with the bottom edge of the back panel, as shown.

3. Align a strip of duct tape with the top edge of the pocket and wrap the tape around the stack.

4. Fold the bottom section of the front panel over the inner pocket and secure the sides with duct tape. Roll up the spacer piece and tape it closed, then tape it near the bottom of the back of the organizer. (This will help the organizer hang flat.)

5. Punch two holes in the outer pocket and link a short length of ball chain through them. Add a small carabiner to the chain. Use double-sided tape to attach a pad of sticky notes above the doorknob hole.
