Spring has been on my mind lately. It’s almost here, and I cannot wait!

This has been the craziest winter … hot one week and cold the next. These customized DIY notepads have been cheering up my desk, reminding me that it’s almost time to put this weird winter behind me.

Start by printing out the free Spring Has Sprung printable (scroll to the end of the post to get it) on regular printer paper. To make a 50 page notepad, you will need to print 25 copies. To make a larger notepad, simply print more copies.

If you would like to create your own custom message or image on the notepads, open a blank document in Microsoft Word. Next, set the page orientation to landscape, and create two columns. Then, simply insert your text or clip art. For detailed instructions on how to do this, see my DIY Personalized Notepads post.

Once you’ve printed the notepad pages, stack them up very neatly. Find the center of the page, and then cut the pages in half with the utility knife. Use a ruler to keep your lines straight.

You’ll also want to cut a piece of cardboard to match the size of the notepad pages. You can upcycle the cardboard from a used notepad or a small box.

Apply a thin layer of glue to the top edge of the pages. Smooth the glue with your finger so it is even.

Once the glue has been applied, place another binder clip on the top edge of the notepad and let dry. Fasten the binder clip back on and let dry completely.

I like to package these notepads with a set of pens or pencils for a simple gift. Tie a little string around the notepad and pencils to hold everything together.
