Have you ever wondered what to do with children’s books that have been “loved” a lot (i.e., some of the pages are torn out)? Well, you can actually make your own notebook or sketchbook. This is what we did. If you have a book with torn pages but, say, a beautiful cover, this project is perfect.
First, take out all the pages of the book (we like to cut these up to use for collages and other art projects).
Then, grab paper (either notebook paper or computer paper) and trim it to fit, if necessary.
Next, apply glue to the spine (we used Tacky Glue) and attach paper to the it, making sure the paper is collated as neatly as possible.
Close the book, and secure with binder clips.
We let the book dry overnight. The next day, we had our custom-made notebook!
It’s very unique, environmentally friendly and great for kids and adults alike!
