Chip Board Note Book

My son is a Teachers Assistant at his old high school. So for the Teacher himself, I made up this note book for him. The chip board was chosen to represent the use of the computer in the Autocad field. It actually came out of my FIL's very old computer which he gave us just for this project *he wanted it out of his house anyways :) * The kids had a blast opening it up and disassembling the whole thing. After finding an appropriate chipboard, I used a pair of my very old, heavy duty, ALL METAL, black and silver, 6 " long sissors. *remember those?* to cut it to size. It was a struggle and just about bruised my palms cutting it, but it worked. And as it turned out, not to much cutting had to be done, for the size of chipboard I was hoping to get.
Incorporating the old school with the new age keyboards, I chose a designer paper that has old typewriter key bottons.
This note book was otherwise made the same way as this one.
The chipboards background is some of that gray computer ribbon.
