These wire bound notepads can be bought virtually anywhere at a low cost. I picked mine up at Staples for a couple of bucks and they came in a pack of 5. These were decorated using a black felt pen and some water colour pencil crayons from the dollar store.
This is a good gift for anyone. I figure the drawings are cheerier than the generic cover that comes on these things.
- Find yourself some notepads.
- Bend the little wire end open so the coil can be removed from the pad of paper. Turn the wire coil and it should twist right out.
- Flip the cover over so the blank side is showing and re-insert the coil.
- Decorate however you wish.
