Ten Minute Notepad Update

6:00:00 AM

"Ten Minute Update"

Sometimes all you need is a few
minutes to turn something from 
frumpy to fabulous!

Take those old notepads we all
have laying around... Dollar store bargains....

I think I have about 6 left over from Christmas this year. 

The one I used for this project had a snowman at the
top and the rest of the page was white...

I cut off the top 2" of every page, 
leaving me with a stack of white lined paper.
(a craft knife will go through many pages at one time)

 I then removed the cardboard backing and the magnet.

I used decorative scissors to cut one edge of the cardboard
and wrapped it around the top of the pad of paper. 

I punched holes through the stack of pages 
and the cardboard...
then tied it with twine.

I put the magnet back on the other side...

And now 10 minutes later, my 
snowman notepad is on the refrigerator 
and ready for a new season.

Quick and easy!
Add whatever embellishment, numbers or words
that strike your fancy!
