Recycling and reusing are great ways to make easy, cheap and fun projects. Here I'm going to make a recycled notebook you can use for just about anything!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
~Cereal box cardboard (or any thin cardboard)
~printer paper (or any kind of paper you want)
~decorative paper for the cover and insides
~Stapler (one that can open up)
~tape or glue
~decorations (anything you want)
First you need to fold all the paper in half until you have your desired amount. Here I am using printer paper. After you are done put it to the side.
Take your cardboard and measure the size of the folded paper on it. You will need the cover to stick out further than the paper. Measure the papers right along the spine of the cardboard and then trace around them.
Now it's time to cut the cardboard!
Now you can decorate the cover. You can decorate it any way you'd like! Here I put some decorative paper on the front but you don't have to do it exactly like this.
No take all the papers you folded and put them inside one another. This creates something called a "Signature" you then want to place it in the middle crease of the cover.
Open up tour stapler and staple the signature in the middle. You will also need to put something under the book so you don't staple directly into your desk!
Congrats!! Now you have your very own notebook to use for anything! You can decorate this further by adding Anything you want!
P.S the pink owl on my book looks more like as duck cuz the stencil moved:(
