DIY notepads with old hardcover books
My mom recently brought over a lot of my old toys and books for George to enjoy. In the pile of treasures we found a set of miniature Sesame Street hardcover books from 1980. The binding was shot and the interior pages were falling out. Instead of recycling them, I wanted to think of a way to upcycle them. I found this tutorial and set to some very easy work of converting these books to blank notepads. My next project will be to turn the interior pages into adorable notecards!
|Supplies: 2 pieces of wood, all purpose tacky glue, blank sheets of paper (cut to size), clamp|
|Clamp the paper between the two pieces of wood.|
|Apply tacky glue along the spine of the notepad. Let dry.|
|Apply glue to the interior spine of the cover.|
|Set the notepad of paper into the glue filled spine of the cover. Close book and let dry.|
