    Question about making a checkbook cover for duplicate checks

    What do you use for the piece that is placed under the top check and copy? I am going to try cutting the plastic piece from a regular cover but Iím thinking there has to be something better to use!>>

    check and see if it needs replacing.

    Thanks for all the replies! They bring up another question.....do you sew your piece in?

    I just use a piece of a recipe card, cut to fit.

    What about using a piece of template plastic?

    How about cutting a piece of the back cover of a spiral notebook. You'd have the holes to hand stitch it into your checkbook cover.

    Another possibility ... cut apart one of those pocket envelopes for 3 ring binders that you slide a page.

    Hardly ever write checks anymore, but you could buy a plastic folder of cutting board, and cut a piece to fit.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
