Refillable Notepad with Dura-Bright Black Film

Project Description: Make a refillable Notepad with Grafix Dura-Bright Black, an adorable way to recycle copy paper.

Designed by: KC Eddy

Difficulty: Easy


  • Grafix Dura-Bright Black Film
  • TCW 6×6” Stencil – Lilacs
  • Faber-Castell Metallic Markers
  • 2 – 1” Binder Rings
  • Copy paper – 8.5×11”
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • Tape

Steps to Make This:

  1. Start by cutting the Grafix Dura-Bright Black Film 9×12” sheet into quarters 4.5”x6”.
  2. Next, secure one piece of Dura-Bright Black Film to your work surface with a piece of tape in one corner.
  3. Place the Lilac stencil over the Dura-Bright Black Film so that the flowers are centered, then tape two corners of the stencil to keep it from slipping.
  4. Use Metallic Markers to color in the open sections of the stencil – “berry nice” for one flower, “ice ice blue” for the other flower, and “wanderlust” for the leaves.
  5. Let the ink dry for a few minutes before removing the stencil to minimize smudges.
  6. Use the silver “nothing else metals” and gold “heart of gold” markers to add highlights to the flowers and leaves.
  7. Punch two holes, 3” apart and ½” from the top of the decorated piece of Dura-Bright Black Film.
  8. Then decorate or leave blank the second black piece for the back of your notepad. (You’ll have two extra pieces of Dura-Bright Black Film cut, so you can make a notepad for a friend or save for another project).
  9. Punch two holes 3” apart, ½” from top of your copy paper cut down to 4.5”x 6”. Make as many pages as you like.
  10. Sandwich the copy paper between the two pieces of Dura-Bright Black Film, lining up the holes, and run a binder ring through the holes to secure.
