This is one of those projects that’s percolated through my mind for a few days before coming to the surface again. Craft: linked to the Martha Stewart craft-of-the-day last week, and in the course of my browsing I discovered the video for making recycled notebooks.
It’s definitely got potential… change the size, and maybe use something a little less expensive than scrapbooking paper for the cover. How about a glossy ad from a magazine, or leftover wrapping paper (which is probably only marginally less expensive), or even patchworked paper or fabric scraps?
Hold it together with a ribbon through punched holes (which would make the cover infinitely recyclable), or those folding metal clip things. Stick a magnet on the back and use it for grocery lists on the fridge.
I definitely, definitely like this idea.
