I don’t know why. I was lying in bed, trying to sleep, when my mind flickered to the uneaten packet of jelly sitting in the kitchen cupboard. I wasn’t hungry, but it wasn’t leaving my mind – suddenly, I could visualise the potential of this innocent little packet of jelly.
So I got up, found the jelly, removed the actual jelly, and took the box upstairs. A bit of glue, 2 small snips, 1 piece of paper and 2 staples later, and I had a funky re-purposed matchbook-style notebook. I scanned the process (only 4 steps) as I went along, and have written up instructions to make your own as a PDF freebie.
The only thing I would change if making another (& why wouldn’t I? My husband loves jelly, so I know he won’t complain!) is to position the paper slightly higher before stapling. I think this is such a cool notebook!
N.B. I also noticed that this kind of jelly packet is exactly the right size to store ATC cards. You can’t tell me there’s not potential there…!
