How to make your own notepad

To make your own notepad you will need:

  • about 15 copies of our free shopping list printable (find the download instructions at the end of this tutorial)
  • Craft knife
  • Ruler
  • PVA glue
  • Binder clips

How to make your own notepad

First, cut your printed shopping list copies on the dotted marks.


Then, stack all of your pad pages together. Adjust them so the top of the pad is completely even. Hold in place using binder clips.


Put some glue on your finger. Tap the glue on the top edge of the pad and smooth it out. Leave to dry. Repeat this whole process once or twice, so you get a thicker layer of glue on the edge.


Leave it to dry thoroughly. And this is how you make your own notepad!
