I am wanting to make a notebook using reclaimed paper & recycling food boxes.  I'd like the pages to be able to be torn out.  I was thinking about using rubber cement.  Will this work?  Any other ideas?

Thanks!

I don't know if this will work.

Line up all the pages like a ream of computer paper and glue one edge.

I guess I'm asking will rubber cement hold the pages for me?

If you glue each sheet of paper to create a book, not only are you making it more difficult for yourself...you're being anything BUT eco friendly using all that glue!

Did you think about sewing them? Or using bookbinders tape?

I guess I'm not being clear - I just want to bind the outside edge so it makes a noteboook/notepad.

I found what I was looking for.  Here's the info if anyone needs it:

errrm if anyone else comes across this and needs some tips, I found that you can make your own perforated edge by running a sheet of paper through an unthreaded sewing machine. it will just punch a row of tiny holes, and if you set the machine to do a short stitch length, the effect is similar to perforated notebooks, where you can rip out a page or two if you need to.

Smiley glad you got your issue sorted out, CJKJ.

I make my own scrap pads and small books and I use the Rollabind system. The discs can be used over and over again and you can add or remove pages anytime you like.   Smiley
