Upcycle a produce box from your local grocer into this nifty little notebook with a few household supplies in a matter of minutes. All you need is paper, a couple zip ties and a box with cool graphics. I made 30 of these for garden journals for my daughter's class and total cost was about $5! If you have zip ties and paper already, it's basically free! Easy enough project for kids to make themselves, as well.
Step 1: Assemble Your Supplies and Choose the Size for Your Book
Step 2: Adjust Your Hole Punch, Punch Paper Packets and Cut Covers
Step 3: Zip Tie Together
I made these for the kids in my daughter's class to use as garden journals. The supplies were really cheap and I made 30 journals in a couple hours. Endless options to personalize and customize...use wine/beer boxes for a different design theme, add interesting pages, glue an envelope on the back cover for seeds or mementoes, etc, etc!
