I recently purchased a new soft cover 13x21cm mole and a mole pen that is designed to attach to the notebook. The pen is flat and has a side clip that is supposed to be designed to attach to a hard cover mole. I noticed that the pen would have to be attached to the outside of the mole which would not be a very tidy or secure package. I realized that if there was a slot cut into the pages of the mole with just enough space to fit the pen, then the pen could be attached to the mole hidden within the cover. Only a small amount of page space would have to be removed, which I deemed worth the tidy package that would result.

    Sorry for the long delay, I never re-checked my hack! I cut the pages a few at a time with an exacto blade. I traced out a slot with curved corners on a pieced of card stock, then reused the card stock after every 8 or so pages that I cut out and kept going until I had the right thickness for the pen to fit. A hole puncher would have made the corners neater and then just cut the straight lines with the blade. I put a metal ruler under the pages as I cut them to keep from going too deep into the other pages.
