    Usually, most CD cases have these things on the corners.

    So you can cut this thing sticking out and use it as a chalkboard cover for your notebooks. You can either use a small fitting notebook and use the case for it or you can cut up some A-4 sheets and make your own notebook. :)

    WHAT TO USE TO WRITE:
    Simple :) a crayon :D
    Use any color of your choice.
    Avoid using this waxy crayons. Try and use crayons of the twisting kind. It's also called twisters. You just simply twist the bottom and it comes up

    You can use a hand scrub or salt to scrub it off every month or so.
    It also rubs with an eraser but as you keep using it it becomes dirty and messy so just use a hand scrub.
