If you haven't seen our post on Mega Stampin Studio today, you will definitely want to check it out. We couldn't stop at one project for Earth Day so we made these fun mini notebooks using soda cans on our covers. We saw this project in one of the Simply Handmade magazines!
First, gather your supplies: copy paper, soda cans, binding system, chipboard
Next, you will need to cut the top and bottom off the empty soda can. We used a knife to poke a hole along the edge and then finish cutting around the can with scissors. Then using a paper cutter, create straight edges.
After, gluing your cover together, you can create the inside pages. We used regular printer paper and cut them to fit - just an 1/8" smaller than the cover and back. We used the Bind It All to add our spiral binding.
After you cut and punch your pages, you are ready to put your book together. Cut your spiral wire binding to fit whatever size you made your notebook. (Ours is 3-1/2" x 3-1/4")
There you go! As easy as that! These would be fun to create for all your friends using their favorite drink. You could also die cut flowers from scrap soda cans and add to these notebooks.
If you'll notice on these, we turned one of them to flip open from the top and the other from the side.
We hope you have enjoyed our re-purposed projects and go celebrate Earth Day.
