Select a piece of cardstock for the notepad base. In my case I used a 5.25×11 inch piece of paper. Score the top edge so that it is shorter than the height of your page, I scored mine at 8.25 inches.
Dig through your stash and pull out papers that you like. Sheet music, Tattered Angles Dyed Paper along with other papers give a great variety.
Stack the papers along the score line, but not over the score. These can be glued or use a paperclip to hold them in place. Once all the papers are stacked add a piece of lace and then sew along the top of the stack.
Add decorations to the page, like stickers and stamps.
Decorate the base page with distress ink and a page from a tear off notepad. Attach the notepad paper with washi tape. A great way to use up that stash of washi tape! If you don’t have washi tape, you could always use a strip of paper. Further decorate by layering the word Journal over a scrap of fabric in the lower right corner.
Create an altered paperclip with scraps of lace. I like sewing the lace so that it stays flat and doesn’t add too much bulk to my journal.
Slide the notepad over the page and secure with the altered paperclip.
