How to make a notepad

Making a notepad at home is easy. Here is how.

Gather your supplies.

  • Paper. Reuse paper or print out some cute to-do list or coloring pages. 
  • 2 rulers. You can use 2 wood blocks or shingles as well.
  • 2 or 3 binder clips. You can also use clamps if you are using wood blocks.
  • Paintbrush.
  • Padding compound, also known as notebook adhesive. Professional padding compound makes great notepads with the perfect binding and cleans up easily.
  • Cardboard. You can buy it or use an old cereal box.
