DIY: Upcycled/Recycled Ramen Noodle Doodles


   Handy Dandy Ramen Noodle Doodle Pad

Save the cardboard outerwrap from a cup o' noodles package, and cut off the front and top panels, leaving them attached to each other.


Cut strips of scrap paper just a bit smaller than the cardboard and staple to the inside, leaving a small flap at the top.  Fold pages to line up with the outerwrap fold.


Put a strip of tape along the flap to reinforce it and punch a hole in the center.  Add a piece of yarn, string, twine, or ric-rac (it kind of looks like a ramen noodle,) through the hole and tie a knot, leaving the ends free.


Fold up your booklet, and wrap the string around it to keep it closed, and tuck in a small (putt-putt golf) pencil.


Perfect for grocery lists, doodles, and reminders to buy more ramen noodles.
