I love the simplicity of these notepads. I have made them for coworkers and students in the past. (The pink one is mine, it has been used quite a bit as you can see!) The best part about these is how few steps it takes to create them! I made a quick photo tutorial to show how simple it is! I read about these on Chica and Jo years ago, I love their ideas!
First your materials: paper, PVA book binding/paper glue (I got mine here), and 1-1/4 inch binder clips.
Step 3. Apply your glue (you may want to shake well first, mine was a bit watery from the summer heat!)
Step 5. Let dry overnight! It turns clear after about an hour, but you really want to let it set well.
And that is all there is too it!
Think this would work in your classroom or for a gift? Let me know how in the comments!
