Cereal Box Note Pads

Sandwich paper between two cardboard rectangles cut from cereal boxes (or other similar weight boxes) use binder clips to hold in place, and apply several coats of Mod Podge on the edge, allowing for drying time between coats. The Mod Podge will seal the edge and make for a tear-off pad.


These are fun to give as gifts and also handy to keep in your purse to jot down notes or entertain your kiddos in restaurants – genius!
