Cereal Box Notebooks Revisited

You may remember that I have made recycled cereal box notebooks before and I really liked how they came out, I just realized that this time I didn’t use any cereal boxes.  I found the tutorial on thelongthread.com.  These little notebooks came in handy for a lot of things, little gifts, giveaways, and just for fun and at the last couple of craft shows I have been to there has been a lot of interest in these simple notebooks.  (They are in the $2.00 to $4.00 range, which seems to be a popular price point, when you want to buy something, but not spend a lot.)  My supply was getting a little low, so I decided to whip up a few more.

The most time consuming part of this project is cutting the paper, notice all of my boxes are a different size and each insert needs to be measured and cut.  This round I used all plain paper, I’m not exactly sure where my stash of lined paper is, I’m sure it will turn up eventually.

Great idea for kids. My daughter loves to doodle in her very own notebook. I'll be giving these a try!
