What you REALLY WANT must be to learn how to make cheap, easy and efficient notepads that give paper an extra life before being sent to a recycling centre.
First thing’s first: Do you have a bunch of scrap paper?
(click the pics if you need to see a description of the steps)
Dig in your recycling bin. If one side is printed on, or you see blank spaces, put them aside.
Fold sheets into fours (or however big you want your notebook to be)
Use your nails to really crease those edges.
After you have a pile of folded paper, ITS RIPPING TIME!
Rip along the fold lines, stack your sheets together, making sure they line up on the top.
Once your stack is big enough, staple the top once or twice. You can also use the string from shopping bags (since it isn’t recyclable)
I like to use interesting scraps for the cover of my notebooks.
You’re done! It’s that easy. Now share them with friends (as long as you leave out the papers with personal info on it)
Note: I thought I’d try something new by using the Gallery function.
If you find it difficult/annoying/strange to read, let me know in the comments!
~~ I’m also curious to hear what you had for breakfast.
