Sometimes it’s the little things that can bring a smile to your face. Scrap paper probably doesn’t seem all that exciting, but we are always looking for ways to recycle and reuse where we can at the Hotel, and are happy when we find a new way to do so.
Several of us keep scrap paper around for taking notes, and at one point my assistant, Kayleigh M, had an entire box of it under her desk. In December, she decided to recycle this scrap paper into proper notepads using padding compound.
Christmas was a busy time for us, and so she decided to make them for Valentine’s Day. She received help from Jasmina "Jaz" Conley, our Assistant Dining Services Manager, who supplied stacks of old menus and did her share of cutting paper.
The two spent spare minutes clipping stacks of scrap paper together and painting on two coats of the padding compound to create over 30 notepads.
