Working in a big company where we use a lot of
paper, I started to reuse sheets of paper and magazines that are not useful anymore. In this way I reached to make my own TO-DO notes using only materials that I had at the office.
- One side printed paper (or any paper that has blank areas)
- Scissors or trimmer
- Adhesive paper
- Old magazine
Step 1: Step 1: Preparing the Sheets
Cut all the paper to the same size. I used the
scissor to cut A6 size paper sheets, although a trimmer or a guillotine makes the work easier. I stopped at 30 sheets (one sheet for each day of TO-DOs J)
Step 2: Step 2
Prepare the covers from 2 sheets with the
picture that you like from the magazine (or if you want hard ones you can cut from an old chocolate box). After you cut them to A6 size you can stick it together with the adhesive paper. Just live a distance of 5 mm (the thickness of my notebook) between them and apply the adhesive paper.
Step 3: Step 3
The last step is to stick together all the
sheets one by one using the glue, starting from the end to the beginning with the clean side up. When all is done you can press something heavy on it for 1-2 hours until the glue is dried.
Tips: I used this way of gluing because I want to rip of every page when the tasks written are done. You can also color the white paper from the top and personalize more you block-notes
