Step 2: Trace a compact disc on scrap paper and cut desired amount of paper for notepad in circles slightly smaller in size than the compact discs. Mark holes for binder rings by placing an already drilled disc on top of paper and marking drill spots. Drill holes through paper using 3/64 inch drill bit.
*Don't forget to cut extra paper, your groovy new notepad is refillable!
Step 3: Embellish compact discs as desired. Be creative, use paint, paper, glitter, or even buttons! To cover with scrap booking paper (as shown in example photograph) trace compact disc on paper, cut out, and glue to compact disc.
Step 4: Insert binder rings to complete notepad and enjoy!

I love this idea, but, it calls for a drill to make holes for the rings, is there a way to bypass this? A different way to sew them together, etc.?

Don't know about bypassing, but if you need a drill and don't want to pay a lot of money, Hobby Lobby carries a hand drill for craft purposes which is about $5.
