Scrap-Paper Notebooks

Source: Martha Stewart Living, June 2002


Instead of writing messages on easily lost slips of paper, make notebooks to keep by the phone.


  • Scrap paper

  • Decorative paper

  • Needle threaded with waxed twine


  1. Cut scrap paper and a piece of decorative paper about 1/2 inch larger on all sides for the cover.

  2. Stack with cover on bottom. Fold in half, crease, and open flat. From inside, push a needle threaded with waxed twine through the center of the crease. Bring back through the crease about 1/2 inch from one end.

  3. Pass through the center hole again, and bring up about 1/2 inch from other end of crease. Pass the needle through the center hole to complete a figure 8 of thread. Knot ends together.
