Bind It All!

Hi Everyone! I want to share with you a few projects I made with the Bind it All machine by Zutter. This machine is new to Paper Zone and we are having so much fun finding ways to use it.

Here's what I made with it: A mini book with photos of my recent girl's trip to Vegas!This is how I made it:

First I gathered supplies. I used card stock, photos, adhesive, heavy plastic overlay for front cover, clip-board wood for back cover, Bind It All machine and paper cutter.

After I cut down the colored card stock and mounted the photos to it, I cut down black card stock to 7.5 x 5 inches for the pages. After adhering the mounted photos to the black pages I used the Bind It All machine to punch holes for the binding.

Next I put the pages and covers onto the binding rings and then I cut the excess binding off. Then I adjusted the Bind It All to the size of binding rings I used and compressed the binding to close and finish it.

Next I worked on the front cover. I used the Hambly Clearly Heavy Overlay; this product comes in 12 x 12 size and has a protective layer on the top and bottom to protect from scratches.

I used Hambly washi tape and letter stickers to embellish and create a title for my book.

Pretty simple, right?

Next, I made a little "To Do List" notebook to keep on hand and toss into my purse.

To create this I first formatted the pages on the computer and printed it out on basic copy paper. Next I cut the pages down to 3 x 5.25 inches in size. Then I punched the holes in the pages for the binding. I used a piece of patterned card stock and a Hambly overlay for the front and back covers.

Finally I used some rub-ons to decorate and create a title for this little book.

I can not wait to see what our creative staff and customers make with this new machine.
Happy Book Making!
