DIY Findings: Recycled filler

So yeah, since I’m busy with school lately, I’m a bit sad that I didn’t have a chance to update this blog. To make up for it, I’ll have two updates today. Yay!


In college, we don’t need those notebooks with so many leaves (unless your professor really likes you to write every lecture), so there are notebooks with fillers of less than 50 pages. And most of the time, these notebook fillers are not “filled” with lectures.

What to do with those notebooks? We RECYCLE them! Not only we cut down on expenses, we also contribute to reducing cut trees for making paper! Very green, right?

Now let me show you how I do it.


Here is one of the notebook fillers I used (last school year though), removed the lecture pages (this filler had 3 or 4 lecture pages only! See?)


An old gift wrapper I had a few years ago (that’s how I save), scissors, double sided tape. The gift wrapper will serve as the new cover of the filler, if you accidentally removed the old cover. If not, then you will not have to do this tutorial. Simple, eh?

So let us start the awesomeness!

Step 1: Put double sided tape on the filler.


Let me explain this. You put double sided tape on the part where the cover used to be attached…


…up to the bottom of the filler.


Cut the double sided tape EXACTLY at the end of the filler.

Step 2: Fold the old giftwrapper in half.


Step 3: Stick the filler to the folded gift wrapper.


Remove the white part of the double sided tape, then…


…put the filler at the fold of the gift wrapper. (sorry the image is blurry >.<)

Then cut the gift wrapper at the same size the pages are.

Just three steps, and voila!


You now have a recycled filler notebook! 😀

Next post coming up!
