Use an Exacto knife to remove the fly leaf, then stack them up. I like to use my trusty three-hole-punch and some scrap ribbon or hemp string to make them into a convenient little book. The pages tear out easily, and you can even decorate your new, frugal, and eco-friendly little note pad.
To decorate the one I made in the photo, I glued the paper circles from my three-hole punch onto some old garage-sale stickers and added petals and leaves using a marker belonging to my kids. Try to use any loose or mis-matched beads or stray buttons, also. Cute, huh?
Note: If the fly leaves are darkly colored, you can always keep and use those for scrapbooking and card making.

Nice idea to recycle if the book has not value. just be sure not to injure the binding when cutting the fly leaves out.
