What could be more fun than making your own mini books! I love my bind it all for just that.....making mini books. This product is great, you can punch right thru just about anything. Cardstock, you have to ask...chipboard...like butter...cd's, acrylic, coasters. Go ahead. I made my own Disney autograph book with chipboard and cardstock...big enough so I can have a siggy and a photo on the same page. Can't tell you how many people asked where I had gotten it. All those cute little word books that are so popular now, no problem. You can make your books anyway, any size you want. My children love it to. They are able to write their stories, illustrate them and then bind them for safe keeping.
Try it out, you won't be sorry.
I love my Bind-It-All and can't say enough good stuff about it. I use it in classes all the time because it is a dependable and durable tool. It works every time with as much maintenance as a hole punch--just empty the punched holes. It is portable, not too heavy, punches through multiple pages and various materials. Probably 90% of the mini books I have made since I bought the BAL have been bound with it. And don't even get me started on all the OTHER projects you can do with it--home decor, binding school reports, making notepads and gifts...it is wonderful. I never go to Kinko's for binding jobs anymore.
I love making the CD books with this little machine. It cuts through CD's and thick chipboard with little pressure. The binding looks so much neater on paper bag albums than the rings or just ribbon. The ideas are endless! The binding wire is available in different colors too! It's very light weight and easy to use. I would however suggest getting the adjustment bar if you are going to use the smaller wires so it will cut closer to the edge of the item and ease in turning the pages. A GREAT tool for the scrapper!
This is a sturdy product for the money. I had no idea I could get such a small, yet so useful machine for this price. I most definitely am already using it lots and I got it only a week ago. It was a little tricky to figure it all out in the beginning, but once you have, it is very easy to use. It takes up such a small space and I love the little plastic spacers too as they are very helpful. You can see what I have made with it here (first of 9 photos):
