Pocket Notebook Making

Making small notebooks the perfect size to fit a pocket from standard composition books is easy and fun. A smart phone is great for keeping track of phone numbers and other info, but it’s good to have a backup. A small notebook that easily fits in a pocket or purse is the perfect way to keep that backup. It never runs out of battery power, doesn’t break if you drop it, and is even water resistant if you use waterproof ink or pencil.

The picture shows two pocket notebooks, two scratch pads, and a composition book like the one that the notebooks and scratch pads were made from. PVA glue is ideal for this project. A good and readily available example of PVA glue is Elmer’s® Glue-All®.
