Geeky Floppy Note Pad

This free recycled craft project shows you how to make a very geeky notepad out of recycled floppy disks.

Geeky Floppy Note Pad

What you need

2 x 3 1/2 inch floppy disks
length of ribbon
Craft Glue
3 A4 sized papers



Instructions

Take your paper, and cut into pieces (3.5 inch by 7 inch).

Fold each piece in half. Make 5 of these for 10 sheets of note paper for your disk notepad.

You can use delicate handmade papers or plain computer paper, just make sure the paper is not too thick.

Place the folded sheets of paper into place run glue along the ribbon and attach to the two disks like a book spine.

Use plenty of glue so that the edges of the papers are also glued to the ribbon.

Allow to dry before opening.

Once your note pad is full you can re-fill it by adding new paper and ribbon.
