Recycled notebooks

by Melanie

I had some of my crafty lady friends over on Friday night and we made these notebooks from recycled paper. The idea came from here: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=b97041a967557110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=recyled%20notebooks&rsc=header_1

The larger one is the size a half sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 paper and the smaller ones are quarter size.

 

It was a pretty simple craft, which is the best kind. That meant that 1- it didn’t require total concentration, so you could visit and snack and craft at the same time, and 2- there were plenty of ways to add your own touches to the project. I’m not really sure what I’ll use these notebooks for, but I’m sure they’ll come in handy sometime. I wish I would have gotten a picture of everyone else’s notebooks because they all were so different but so cute! If anyone has ideas of other simple crafts I’d love to hear about them!
