So, I had a big clear out of the wardrobes in the garage (yes, we have wardrobes in our garage, because we had the garage converted into a granny flat and my grandparents used to live there..we never did get out of the habit of calling it the garage...). I went from having 9 boxes of stuff in there to 6, and along with having lots of things to donate I also got rid of a rather massive pile of paper from my teaching days. I put this in the recycling, but had second thoughts, because I knew most of the paper was unused worksheets and had only been printed or written on on one side, I knew they could be reused for something, so I rescued them.
I used this tutorial on Instructables and made the paper into a notebook! I didn't use the measurements she gave though, I just folded my sheets of A4 paper in half, cut along the crease, folded those pieces in half and stacked them together to make the signatures, then measured a piece of card big enough to hold it all in afterwards.
Have you ever made your own notebook? How did you do it?
