Wouldn't grocery shopping be so much more fun if you had a cute notepad for your shopping list? I think so!
I made a few notepad covers from grocery boxes (cereal, crackers, and pasta) last week and love how they turned out!! I started with a few plain small notepads (purchased from walgreens 3/$1). I cut a piece of cardboard (from a cereal box) that would completely cover the front of the notepad and fold over the top with approximately 3" overage for the back cover. Then I cut strips of cardboard from the grocery boxes and used hot glue (only in the center of each strip) to attach them to the base cardboard. I used a zigzag stitch to sew the edges of the cardboard strips. I glued cute cardstock paper to the inside cover so the back of my stitches didn't show. A few embellishments later and I had super cute notepads!
I'm saving all my empty grocery boxes to make more!!
