How To Make A Magnetic Notepad For Moms
I created a template of three notepad pages per page . I printed out ten copies of the page template. This will give you one notepad, with thirty pages. If you prefer more pages to your notepad, feel free to print out as many as you would like for your notepad.
Using your paper cutter or scissors cut out the pages. Trim the ends on the left page and the right page so they are all the same size as the center sheet.
Stack all your pages and make sure they are all the same size. Cut them down if you need to.
Smear glue on the edge of the notepad and chipboard. You don’t need a big glob, just make sure the edges are fully coated. Once it dries, you can always give it a second coat.
You can see the full tutorial here of my Sewing Notepads.
Pro Tip: Use binder clips to hold the pages in place, until the glue dries. I put a book on top and when I took the book off it tore the page, so if you use a book be careful!
Using your chipboard, line up the top edges of your sheets to the edge of the chipboard and trace the edge with a pen so you can be sure to cut a straight line. The chipboard should be the same size as your sheets.
If you don’t have chipboard you can use the chipboard from the back of an 8 and 1/2×11 spiral notebook. I have several lying around that I use for college and that’s what I used for these and it works great.
If you use a book, be careful! Put the book up to the very edge, being careful not to get any glue on it.

Add two magnetic tape strips on the back to complete your notepad.
