Have you ever wondered how to make a notepad that you could tear out pages easily, without ripping the paper? Well, I discovered an easy way to make these notepads. There is only one answer: hotglue. I love hot glue guns. For me, they solve my everyday problems from repairing broken things to just gluing stuff in a hurry. Follow these steps to find out how to make a notepad!

Materials needed:
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • A stack of paper (any kind will do)
  • Thin piece of cardboard (either a Kleenex box, cereal box, or, for a sturdier notepad, a flap from a cardboard box)
  • Scissors

Time taken: 5 minutes
Skill level: Easy! Anyone can do this!

Step 1: Cut, Cut, Cut!

For starters, decide what size notepad you want. I chose 4 inches by a little over 3 inches, but you can choose any size you want. Cut the stack of paper to that size; if it is too thick for your scissors, divide it in half and cut separately. The stack of paper can be whatever thickness you desire.

Next, cut the cardboard. Trace the size of the paper onto the cardboard, and cut it out.

Now you have your pieces.
