Well, with all of my new year resolutions and things to do and thing to get done and things to try, doing basically, I have been making a lot of lists.
Grocery lists, exercise lists, reading lists, craft projects to do lists, things to buy, things to find, things to whatever, etc. I have also been printing out lots of tests for patterns and clm and other random things, so I have a lot of used paper that I never really used.
Add that too leftover scrap book paper from holiday crafting and random gift bags and you have yourself the ideal ingredients to make your very own recycled paper to do list. I wouldn’t really recommend this for anything else because with this method of binding, the pages tear out really nice and easy.
Here is what I did:
Basically, cut your scrap paper into quarters (4.25″ x 5.5″), cut a piece of the card board from the bottom of the gift bag to the same size, cut a piece of the gift bag to the same size for the front (or the scrapbook paper, whichever you prefer), put it all together so it’s decorative paper, scrap paper, then card board. Take your hot glue gun and put a nice glob of it along the side edge to bind it, smooth it out with a piece of scrap card board. Cut another piece of the bag or the scrapbook paper to 4.25″ x 1.5″, put a line of glue on the front next to the edge, place cut piece on it with right side facing down and press it down until it dries, bend piece to back side and repeat gluing. And that’s it!
I’m not going to post any tutorials this time around because I think this is pretty easy to do.
These are my favorite ones on Etsy:
And that’s it for today folks. It’s a little late for getting over hump day, but hopefully it will help you get through the rest of the week until Friday night. I’ll see you all on Saturday! Have a great crafty week!
