Recycled Note Holder

Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 148 Posts

This is a recycled craft that the kids can make for dad on his special day (with a little help from mom). It is made from a french fry container from McDonald's.



  • McDonald's french fry container
  • light card stock
  • glue (white glue, hot glue, or rubber cement)
  • paper punch
  • paper cut to size for notes
  • pen or pencil
  • Sharpie (any color)


  1. Cut a piece of light card stock to cover the printing on the french fry container. Use photo as a guide. I cut mine a wee bit smaller than the container, so it is bordered in red.
  2. Decorate the card stock by printing "Notes" across the top. You can decorate it with stickers, or draw pictures such as flowers or rainbows, if you like.
  3. Side of Recycled Note Holder

  4. Punch a hole at the center top as you see in the photo to hang the note holder.
  5. McDonald's Fries Box


  6. Glue the card to the front with any glue you like. Just a few dots of hot glue at the corners would work well, and adhere quickly.
  7. Add a pen or pencil and cut some paper to fit in the pocket for writing notes.
