For a while I have wanted a small graph paper pad to jot down ideas on. Today at a local stationary store I found a nice pocket sized graph paper pad. After remembering several other instructables about binding things with denim, I tried my hand at it.

Here is what I ended up with:

Step 1: Materials and tools:

You will need:
1. Paper pad,
I used a Rhodia graph paper pad that was 80 sheets and 8.5 X 12 cm, 3.3 X4.7 inches. You can find a pad you like with the lines you like at a stationary store.

2. Jeans,
I used jeans that don't fit me anymore.

3. Velcro,
mine was adhesive but it doesn't really matter.

4. Sharp scissors,
preferably sewing scissors.

5. Hot glue gun and glue,
any glue gun should be fine, but make sure you a few sticks of clear glue to use,you can use normal glue, but it will take forever and a half to make.

6. Ruler and pen.

7. Black binder clips, (Optional)
