Anyone over the age of 30 does and yet today the number of people who use the yellow pages is a tiny fraction of what it used to be. I can’t tell you the number of times in my own business I would receive phone calls from yellow page salespeople trying to convince me why my consulting business needed to have a big block ad in the yellow pages.
These salespeople were trying to use their standard sales pitch on every business.  Tailoring the presentation to the needs of the customer is absolutely essential. When someone is selling what they believe is a monopoly, it is only natural they become arrogant and stop listening to the customer.  When salespeople stop listening, customers will in time stop buying.
Anyway, in mid disposal and very close to committing DIY Inspired blasphemy, I remembered that I could not simply throw out this phonebook rather I would have to do my crafty diligence and repurpose it into something new. Spring is finally approaching, and with it comes a familiar sound… the thud of a new phone book landing on the front porch.
Before you can cut through the rest of the book, you need to fold the cut part out of the way, but the spine is stopping you.
When you’ve cut the book in two, use a pair of scissors to cut the front and back cover off, as close to the spine as you can.
Separate the pages of the book evenly into 5 sections, and put a binder clip on each section to hold it in place. Squirt a bunch of glue around the pencil and roll the book up around it, holding it in place until it’s set.
If it fits, glob a bunch of hot glue on the edge and push it back into the crease, securing your loop. Let it dry then apply a second heavy coat, but this time go ahead and brush the Mod Podge on the inside and outside of the loops, and again on the top edges. With the card stock bottom in place, apply another liberal coat (or two) of Mod Podge to the exposed surface, to seal it.

When it’s all dry, go ahead and fill it with markers, pens, and pencils and add it to your desk. At our reader Cindy’s suggestion, I created another phone book organizer with each compartment at a different level.
To remove the unwanted part of the pages, put the blade of the knife down into the spine and cut through, removing the whole section in (hopefully) one piece. Now fold the next section of pages down and measure again from the top, but this time marking it at only 3 inches. The only problem I had with this approach is that the ends of the pages in each section were all showing because the compartments were different heights, so there was nowhere to hide the hot glue and cut ends. It no longer looks like a phone book, so it has lost a little bit of the quirky appeal, but I really love the colorful result I got by painting each petal a different color. It would take some planning up front, but it would be cool to make each of the loops a different height. Followed a link from iReport on CNN about recycling old phonebooks…this is such an incredible site!
I LOVE it and would love to have you post it to one of my parties.I will have new parties up on Sunday Night and Tues Night. My idea is to drill a hole in the center of each phone book (I have several different sizes) and then stack them on a rod (like a cake decorator would do). I am making one a bit taller for my kitchen utensils, one for an herb planter on my porch or a few linked together lined up on the rail like a flower box. Heather, the petals get pretty sturdy once you’ve coated them with several layers of Mod Podge, so you might be fine with a thinner book.

Rose, I haven’t worked with PVA glue enough to know if it will dry to a clear, hard finish like Mod Podge or other decoupage mediums would.

Cut on that mark and then again in the spine, to remove the section of pages from this layer. One of our readers suggested using them under a glue-gun to catch drips, ripping off pages when you need a fresh surface. The first one I made following your steps exactly but the second one I did a little differently.
I made the two different level one in the shape of a butterfly and completely covered it in Mod Podge Sparkle.
Formerly an educator at CSUF and business owner, she now is a full time writer, Curator for Style Me Pretty Living, 3M DIY Expert, and a member of Martha’s Circle. I didnt cut the ends of the pages to square them again before gluing into the loop position.
We could be throwing a unique party, refinishing a flea market find, or whipping up a new cupcake recipe. Using a 1″ wide, soft-bristled paint brush, glob the Mod Podge onto the top edges of the loops, making the individual pages all stick together.
