A change of topic on my blog today. My mini malden is my handbag notebook as I was finding that usual notebooks were getting bashed and tattered over time. So I decided to invest in a more permanent solution.
I needed some more paper and I could have bought or printed some but I do have small pieces of paper which are too small for much else but I thought could have a new lease of life.
So I used a paper cutter to cut some A6 sheets of paper using both lines and plain paper.
Then taking the dashboard I marked out the holes.
I then adjusted my A5 hole punch and carried out a test piece to check that the holes were in line with those of my plastic dashboard sheet.
This may not seem very new but I thought why use up new paper when I can recycle smaller pieces that would perhaps otherwise be thrown away. I can also mix up the papers I use to add colour and more interest to my mini Malden. Scrapbook paper, craft paper, even scraps of thick gift wrap paper.
Fits in a treat and I am now going through my small scrap papers to see what else I can add. Yesterday my mini Malden with its "new" paper came into its own whilst writing down important info when I was trying to buy a new phone in Carphone Warehouse. Now there is a saga waiting to be blogged about, or maybe not!
Have a good week,
