Here’s a tutorial on Design*Sponge for a perfect bound notebook for all your scrap papers. It’s equally useful for binding projects. What I like about this in particular is it’s use of materials found around the house. In other words, you don’t need to go out and buy a fancy press or make anything – it can be done anywhere, even on the road. The full how to on Design*Sponge.
we blessing sisters have loved notepads, notebooks and all things paper since our first wide-rule pads we bought in gradeschool. we have trouble letting go of even a single sheet of paper, lest we find a use to reuse or recycle it in the craft room! this time, we repurposed our old faxes and paper scraps into notebooks and made them useful again. we pulled out old wrapping paper, books we didn’t mind ripping pages out of, and other odds and ends to make the covers pretty. this is quick and easy to do with what you already have at home, and you end up with a stack of handy, useful pads that might even give you a tinge of back-to-school nostalgia.
