This is a quick, easy way to recycle cardboard, and the trash that is left over after you use contact paper. It is easy and fun to make, plus is a really useful thing to have.

Step 1: Materials

1. The stuff left over once you've used contact paper (don't waste your contact paper to do this, do something else with your paper like, lining shelves, making cool wall art, or you could even cover the covers of your notebook with it
2. Cardboard
3. Anything that can hold it together (string, ribbons, ect.)
4.Siscors
5. Hole punch
6. Napkin, tissue, paper towel, or what ever
7. Dry erase marker

Step 2: Cut Your Pages

After you use your contact paper divide the filmy stuff that's left into equal sized pieces. They need to be small, but still big enough to write on.

Step 3: Cut Your Covers

Cut two equal pieces of cardboard. They should be a little bigger than your pages.

Step 4: Hole Punching Time!

Punch two holes in all your pieces. Make sure that they are lined up.

Step 5: String It All Together!

Line up all your pieces so that the two cardboard covers are on the outside and the glossy sides of the pages are facing up. Then string your string through each hole. Cut and tie a knot.

Step 6: Done!!!

You are done with your dry erase notebook! Write in it with a dry erase marker and wipe it off with a napkin!
