My Make Do Note Pad
So today came and I wasn't ready for Make Do Monday. Well I had plenty of ideas and I wanted one that would be new so I decided to fix my problem of note paper. It seems I a lot of times just need a small piece of paper to jot down a note on.
Like a web address so that Hubby can print something for me. (I don't stay hooked up to a printer and for some reason we can't get the Toshiba Laptop to print to his printer anyway.)
Or I can jot a phone number or street address. Or even a simple recipe. Most of the time I take the laptop to the kitchen when I need to make something from a recipe online or in my documents. But if it is a small, or quick recipe, I jot down the numbers and take the note to the kitchen. Most of you would remember a small recipe, but my memory isn't so great in that department anymore. Bummer!
So I have been using old business cards as note paper for years now. Don't ask how, but I have plenty. But the problem with that is they scatter and get borrowed for other projects. So I figure if I make them into a note pad type thing, maybe I can keep some by the computer so I have them when I need them.
So here is my solution:
I stacked the cards evenly and then put the elastic around the edges.
Then I smeared glue on the one edge I wanted to be the top. Pilot suggests doing a couple of layers. I haven't tried it yet, but it may make a better bond.
When the glue dried, it looked just like a storebought notepad.
Do you see the chocolate? Yes, what project can be worked on without a bit of chocolate nearby?
Pilot picked it up from the store the other day with me in mind, he said. It is a Ganache Torte. Day old, well maybe week old, it definitely needed milk with it. But it is the thought that counts!! Right?!
Now I can jot a note and take it with me. Unless, someone else thinks this is cool and they borrow it for their own use!!! Possible, but I will set down the law when everyone gets back home!! lol...........................
Another Easy Peasy Project!! Useful, Make-Do and I am happy.
Thanks for visiting with me today and leave me a comment if you have the time.
