This project is easy to do and is very green--you can recycle your old giftcards into covers for a cute little notepad. If you only have one gift card that you like, find a fake credit card (like the kind you get in junk mail) or a gift card you don't like that you can use for the back cover.
- 2 Gift Cards (no money on them)
- Bind It All Machine
- About 10 sheets of printer paper or notebook paper
- 4 "loops" of 3/4" Zutter O-Wire
- Strong Tape Runner Adhesive
1. Cover the backs of each gift cards with patterned paper. This is to cover the ugly UPC code parts of the cards. Make sure there is no money on the card before you do this because you won't be able to use the cards after this. If you're using an ugly card for your back cover, cover BOTH sides of that card with paper.
2. Insert the cards into the Bind It All with the INSIDES of the covers facing each other. Use the holes printed along the top of the machine to make sure that you're only punching 4 holes into the cards.
This is what your cards should look like once the holes have been punched:
3. Cut the printer or notebook paper down to slightly smaller than your gift cards -- a standard size seems to be about 2" x 3".
4. Punch 4 holes in the top of the paper pieces along the 2" (shorter) side. You can punch as many papers at a time as will fit in the Bind It All slot.
5. Stack your pages in this order to be bound:
- Notebook or Printer paper stack
- Then put the COVER on top.
- Then put the BACK COVER on top so you can see the INSIDE of the back cover.
6. Thread the O-Wires from the bottom (through the paper pages, then the cover, then the back cover).
7. Close the O-Wires using the Bind It All machine. Flip the back cover to the back and voila: instant mini notepad!
- Box of 3/4" Antique Brass O-Wires (same color I used on the mini notebook)
- 8x8 Kraft Cover-All
- 8x8 Black Inner Pages
- 5x 7.5 Clipboard Wood Covers
- 5x 7.5 Cream Inner Pages
- 6x6 Chipboard Covers
- 6x6 Acrylic Covers
- 6x6 White Inner Pages
- 3x4 Clipboard Wood Covers
- Bottle of Rivet Fasteners
