Organize with Clipboards

I'm always looking for better ways to stay organized. And sometimes I need reminders right in front of my face. I'm using clear clipboards today to show you a quick way to stay organized. Remember, a couple of months ago I decided to start using Cricut Explore Air™, you can find more about the Cricut here.

DIY Spiral Notebook

Today I pulled out my laminator, binding machine, paper and a few other supplies and created this DIY spiral notebook and I wanted to share with you how you can make one yourself.  It's not as hard as you might think and if you don't have the laminator or binding machine, you could easily have your local office supply store laminate and bind it for you.
Let's get started, you only need a few supplies, I gathered these items:
 - 40 sheets printer paper for the inside of your notebook
 - front cover and back cover, print any image
 - Laminating pouches, I used 6x9 inches
 - Laminator
 - Clear binding coil
 - Binding machine
 - Coil Cutting and Crimping Tool

You can create your notebook any size - larger or even smaller than mine.  I'm sharing with you the measurements I used.
Notebook is 6X9 inches when completed
 - Laminating pouches - 6x9 inches
 - Covers - 5.75x8.75 inches
 - Inside sheets - 5.5x8.5 inches

Turn on the laminator to pre-heat.  Set temperature based on your manufacture's  instructions.  Print out covers, cut and then insert the front and back covers into the laminating pouches.  Using the binding machine punch holes into the front and back covers.  Count out 40 sheets of printer paper, cut them to size and punch those.  There are 80 total pages inside the notebook.

 Line everything up, add the coil and then crimp the ends of the coil.
