This is like a hipster PDA, but better!. It is more durable, sturdy, and easier to replace cards.

As many index cards as you want pages.
Two pieces cardboard, thin enough to cut easily (see step 2 for information on the sizes you are going to need to cut it to)
3 Binder Rings (available from Staples in a pack, may be called "Book Rings")

Step 1: Punch Holes in Index Cards

Choose how many index cards you want, and using either a one-hole puncher or an adjustable 3-hole punch with holes 2 and 3 removed (that's what I used) punch a little at a time to have the holes look like the picture.
The first time, punch the holes. The second time, use one card from the first time as a reference, so the holes will line up.
i've browsed through maybe a billion instructables in my day, had some fun and saw some incredible things, but i've got to say that this is the best thing i've ever seen. worthy of the only comment i've posted to date.
&nbsp;If you mean why a stupid Instructable, why are you asking that?<br /> <br /> If you mean why a hPDA, then let me just tell you that these things are unbelievably useful for quite a few people, especially writers with no time to sit and write...<br />

I think a laminated index card or piece of laminated cardstock would work well for a cover and would be easier to punch holes in than cardboard.
Old keyrings may work too :)
