We have had endless fun making custom, personalized notepads and doing various fun projects with it, and are still coming up with new ideas for more.
To keep the end of the paper firm and tight, add a piece of cardboard to each side and secure with a couple of binder clips. Jo and I enjoy keeping our cards bundled as well, and everyone is always delighted when we pull a card off the stack to hand them.
However, that label design creates sideways pages instead of tall pages, so I messed with the default template until I got a working design. Oh, one other thing I discovered while testing this idea today… When you use regular copy paper for a notepad, I recommend cutting a piece of cardboard (the same size as the pages) to back your notepad, since the paper is so thin.
When I retired from teaching, I took many of my old worksheets and made them into notepads.
At Heather’s suggestion, I tried making some notepads (some with paper and some with card stock) using Mod Podge instead of padding compound.
For both tests, I found that the Mod Podge did hold the pages together, but the padding compound is more suitable for this task for the following reasons. In summary, the Mod Podge will work for holding pages together in a pinch, but the padding compound will give you much better and more usable results. One of our readers used this tutorial to make adorable notepads featuring her cat, Whiskers. HI there, I have been looking for padding compund everywhere and people stare at me blankly. A couple of weeks ago, I was bored at work (hehe) and thought to myself – I wonder if it is possible to make my own notepads.
One tip you can try is to put a piece of masking tape on the base of your cutter, lined up with the edge of the first page you want to cut. Sounds fun using patterned paper scraps, and I will try it for my husbands business cards as well – what a great idea! For those who are having a hard time cutting the paper into equal and straight parts, you might want to consider a Dreamkuts machine from the makers of the Bind-It-All.


The best pads I ever made were for a salesman who would come in and have a stack of one dollar bills padded up.
I also love the idea of a pad of dollar bills, which would make a great gift for teenagers.
I just ordered my padding compound and I can’t wait to get started making my notepads. Cyndee, I find that a paper trimmer works best for me when trying to cut full sheets down to size. Back when I was into making cards, I would buy a ream of cardstock paper and I would take it to Kinkos (now its known as Fedex kinkos) and they would cut the whole ream in half for me or in quarters it worked perfect because they have a huge cutter and it would cut the whole ream (500 sheets) 1 chop and it was a perfect even cut. You can also buy repositionable glue sticks that you can run along the top of the back of each paper in the stack and turn your pads of paper into Post-it style pads of paper. I am excited to hear about the compound but have not been able to find it at hardware or craft stores in our area so will be ordering from your site! I found this on Pinterest, too, and remembered that we used to make these at school – also had the advantage of a press.
While looking around I actually found a website that has instructions for making your own padding compound.
I tried the homemade padding compound recipe last night, and thought I’d share my results with you. Remember way back in 2009 when we featured those DIY View Master invitations that the internet collectively lost their minds over? All the reels are made using your own photos - you can upload them instantly right from your computer onto their site.
Whether you want to order 200 for your wedding invites, five as your reception table settings, or one very special reel to pop the question, Image3D has the ability to make any and all of your 3D schemes happen.
Oh, and good news for international readers: while everything Image3D does is 100% made in the USA, they do ship all over the world. I’m going to order my padding compound today but I’m just wondering, how long do you need to let it dry before you can remove the binder clips and protective paper?


A former boss of mine had us save all of our scrap paper…we cut it to size and glued it together for note-pads.
He’d keep them in a checkbook, and he said the reaction when he would rip out a few bills was always fun.
I think that cereal boxes would also make a good backing for notepads, especially if you’re interested in recycling.
I plan on giving them as Christmas gifts with each person’s name on it and a clip art of something that they like. I planning my son’s 4th birthday and found the your site looking for crayon birthday ideas.
Folks love using the scratch pads & keep them by their phone for the many calls we deal with. If you require further details regarding the transaction data, please contact the supplier directly.
Also, I printed coloring sheets, mazes, and other puzzles 4 to a sheet of paper for a activity book for my niece.
I now it’s not as sturdy as chipboard, but most of us have it in our homes and the price is right!
I don’t think I can go wrong with a product that has such RAVE reviews dating back over THREE YEARS!!! When I worked for a medical lab in the early ’90s, we made our own note pads to cut down on costs.
That stuff was red not white and was applied with a paintbrush too, so a print shop may have different colors of the compound. I use a Printshop program and used the postcard feature and it works great for making 4 of the perfect size for cutting for notepads.
