I have found that little pieces of scratch paper can be extremely useful throughout a day of teaching mathematics. I always have SOOO much scratch paper and I could NEVER use it all (even though I use it whenever I can) so I found another way of using it.
I had seen something that made me think this was possible and just didn't know how to make it work. Then I remembered that this was the age of the internet, so I found some blogs of people who had done it (http://www.chicaandjo.com/2008/10/22/make-your-own-custom-notepads/ http://www.instructables.com/id/Duct-Tape-Tear-Away-Scratch-Pad/ and many others) and set out to try it myself.
I started with scratch paper and headed to the paper cutter! I wanted to use 1/4 of a piece of paper, so I started cutting...

I usually glue them 3-5 times before calling it good, but it only takes a little bit of time in between to dry.
