I am always trying to be better organized…keep to a plan and make lists.
Sometimes it workths… sometimes it don’t.
But I’ll never, never, never give up!
And so I made this to do list that turned into sort of a daily planner type thingy. Mainly, I wanted a place to write my to-do list, make a plan for the day, have a place for ideas and a place to make a list of supplies I need.
And so far, it’s working pretty well!
But then I didn’t want to print off fifty-eleven and have them flying all over the already crazy-pants office.
Then I thought, mayhaps, I could make my own notepad.
I looked for some glue that was made particularly for this purpose and found a couple of things on Amazon, and then I got cheap and figured I could use what I had.
And what I had was hot glue. That’s all.
So I tried it out and, lordy-be, IT WORKED!
How to make a DIY notepad
You will need:
- File Folder
- Hot Glue
Print the printable out. I printed about twenty sheets for testing puposes.
- First, take a manilla-type file folder and cut it to 8.5″x11″ inches.
- Check that it fits your paper.
- Clothespin it together.
- Then, while you hold it down…
- Run hot glue over the edges of the paper.
- It might look kinda messy…
- But let me tell you that it works!
You might have to run some glue over the back edge as well.
But, when I tested it, the paper pulled right off without any issues. It’s a very down-to-earth, well-balanced notepad. 🙂
And I’m using it every day… I might try out some glue that is made for this though, because it would be fun to make my own to do lists for gifts!
Pin me for later says the DIY Notepad…
Are you addicted to making lists? I’m starting to be…
