D.I.Y Baking Notepad (with cupcakes, sprinkles and vanilla!)
I’ve got something new to share with you. It’s not a recipe or a dessert I whipped up but something totally funky that you can use: a notepad. Well, there is some DIY steps involved and then it will be a notepad. You can use in the kitchen, for making your grocery lists, for scribbling recipes that your grandma gives you over the phone, for writing and sharing your favourite cupcake recipe with your friend – anything!
So how did I come up with this? A few weeks ago when heard of Moleskine coming out with their new recipe journals
, I got excited, really excited. That excitement lasted all of 9 minutes because I learned that Moleskine won’t import their goodies to India. Sigh. Given the stationary and notebook collector that I am, I went on a sort of spree and bought some gorgeous notebooks – with papers in varied colours and textures. While I love them all, I didn’t quite find something with cutesy illustrations and whatnot, so I just got down to making something myself.
What you need to do to make the jot pad:
- Download the free PDF file of the DIY Baking Notepad here. (Right Click > Save Link As or Right Click > Download)
- Print them on A4-sized papers. Try stacking different colours of paper into your printer.
- Cut the sheet of paper along the lines that run through the centre folds of the page.
- Arrange the sheets neatly and bind them together with a paper clip. You can even punch holes and hold them together with a nice ribbon or use a jute rope for a rustic look.
PS: Thank you for all the feedback through Facebook
and comments about the new design. I loved creating these illustrations and making this blog more representative of personality. If you’re reading this in your inbox or RSS reader, do come over and let me know what you think!
