Convert scrap paper into a handy notepad with tear-away sheets using duct tape instead of specialty binding glue.
What you'll need:
Cereal box or other cardboard for backing
Binder clips or rubber bands
Step 1: Cut your paper and backing
Using a paper cutter of your choice (swing arm, rotary, etc.) cut your scrap paper and backing to desired size. When you are stacking the paper after it is cut, be sure to stack so that the side to be bound consists of uncut edges. This step isn't absolutely necessary, but I have found that uncut edges are easier to align and adhere better.
I chose to make mostly 5.5" x 8.5" and 5.5" x 4.25" notepads. I also made one 4" by 2.5" mini notepad.
You can also leave the paper uncut if you prefer a full size scratch pad.
