I was collecting these one sided printouts for a long time. There are many a times when one sided printouts can not be avoided specially with train / plain tickets. Thankfully Indian Railways now allows passengers to travel with SMS ticket. I am hopeful that Bangalore International Airport also allows people to enter the airport with valid SMS ticket instead of a printout.
So I had a lot of such one side printed papers which I was using to write random stuff and decided to make a nice notebook out of it.
Its really simple, first I folded the A4 paper from the center and applied glue on the inner boundaries. Now this becomes a two sided blank paper. I made 20 such pages.
Next I punched two holes along one of the longer sides of the paper. These holes were on either sides of the center.
There was a box of Papa John’s pizza box lying around the corner for a long time. The cover for the notebook was cut out of this pizza box cardboard, litter bigger than the pages so that it can cover the pages nicely.
I punched two holes on the cover too. Then I joined the cover together using a paper strip. This paper strip will sit nicely on the binding side once the papers are put together.
I used the fallen thread from the curtain to bind the pages and cover together.
Then I and Priyanka tried our hands on News Paper Mosaic and decorated the front cover the news paper Mosaic. After this we made a news paper collage on top of the mosaic (which became the background). We did another collage on the back cover.
The collage talks about rain water harvesting 🙂
Here’s the notebook
Do let me know what you think about this 🙂
