DIY: Easy Stapled Notebooks

June 6, 2016

Introducing the new We R Memory Keepers Staple Board that let's you staple anywhere on the page. Use it to create these Easy Stapled Notebooks in minutes

I’m due for a notebook tutorial, don’t you think? It’s been a while since we made these and I wanted to revive you notebook obsession with a super simple craft. I also need to introduce you to your new best friend. The We R Memory Keepers StapleBoard is the coolest little tool! It allows you to staple anywhere on the page…anywhere! Try doing that with a regular stapler. It won’t happen.

As soon as I got my mitts on this tool, I knew what had to be done. A notebook had to be made. It was the only right thing to do. And now, I’m sharing this simple project with you.

  1. I love this project, Amber! All of your projects are colorful and infused with your fun personality, and I know you want to flex your creative muscles with other mediums, but it is your paper projects (notebooks, stationery, etc.) that I follow you for. Even though I don’t have any of the specialized tools that many of your paper projects require (my craft supplies fit into a shoe-box!) I pin away.
    Congrats on all your recent successes!

  2. Thanks for sharing this! I love all of these great stationery projects. Where do you get your pretty scrapbook paper from??

  3. Oh cool – I recorded the craft shows on HSN today so I’ll see you there!
    What a fun project – Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi Amber, I purchased my staple board last week off ebay and I received it already. I can’t wait to use it. Love your notebooks.
