Cinch Notebooks Made with Cereal Boxes!

I love crafts that use things that are on their way out to the recycling bin or trash...and I can upcycle them for a fun craft. Take some old cereal boxes and make the perfect notebooks using the Cinch binding tool.

These cute notebooks could be made with any cardboard box on their way to the recycling.

Supplies Needed for Cereal Box Notebooks:


Cinch Binding Tool (I scored on mine and found it at the thrift store for $15)



Cereal Box (cut to 5X7)
Paper (cut to 5X7)

Upcycle cardboard cereal boxes into fun notebook journals

Here's a video using the Cinch machine and upcycled books:





Using the Cinch is a breeze.
Begin by hooking the comb on the side of the Cinch.

Punch holes on the side of the paper. Use the chart guide on the Cinch to tell you which knobs to pull to punch the paper correctly.

Then punch the additional holes after pulling the peg.

At the end, punch the holes in the cereal box covers. Line them up as you want them to be on the notebook, then punch the correct side. Place them on top of the papers on the wire.

Remove the wire comb, papers and all, and place them under the press on the back of the Cinch. Then press down firmly to clamp the wires down tightly.

Plus, I love notebooks. I want to say, "you can never have too many notebooks, right!?"...but I'm seriously watching Hoarders while I'm typing this...so I'm thinking you could actually have too many. But make a few to gift to friends.

I had a couple scrap wires from cutting them down for the other 2 notebooks, so I punched the next notebook to fit the 2 scrap pieces. I think it turned out so cute! It works just as well without having the center part punched.
