DIY notepad

As a scrapbooker I often have piles of leftover paper that is hard to find a project for. We also always seem to be scrambling for a piece of paper and I love a compact notepad so I decided to make small, portable notepads out of my scraps.

Pages
Cut ~10 pages, preferably from lined paper or plain white paper (it’s easier to staple together later) that are 2 1/2 in square.

For the cover, cut a piece of scrapbook paper or card stock to 6 1/4 and 3 in.

Fold cover at the bottom over a ruler at 3/4 in and down from the top over a ruler at 2 1/2 in.

Line up all the pages and tuck them in the 3/4 in pocket. Staple in place near the bottom.

Tuck top flap into bottom flap, just above staple.

Decorate if you want.diy notepad (2)
