The Bind-it-All machine is a great tool to have because in the long run it can save you a lot of money! You can bind your own scrapbooks and no longer have to purchase expensive albums. And you can also use it to create an endless amount of quick and easy gifts that are simple notebooks, art journals and much more.
You have the option of purchase pre-cut covers (click here to see the full collection) or you can easily create your own which I have done using recycled corrugated cardboard. Start by cutting out two pieces of 6" x 6" corrugated cardboard. Tear off pieces of one side on the cover so that you reveal the corrugated pattern. Randomly paint the cover with white paint and allow to dry. Then spray with glimmer mist. Once the glimmer mist has dried you can seal the cover by painting it with Collage Pauge.
Stamp the large images onto a piece of RUE 88 cardstock with black ink. Cut out or tear the image down to size. Take a coordinating piece of RUE 88 cardstock and cut out various shapes. Distress the edges of the cardstock pieces with the black ink. Glue your pieces onto the cover as desired. You can also use the Collage Pauge as the adhesive. Take the aqua and pink rolls of Happytape from the Sherbet collection and stamp your favorite words onto a torn piece of the tape. I use the type alphabet and black ink with our acrylic blocks. Either add just the simple strip of the tape with a stamped word or try adding some pink tape under the aqua as I did in the Memoir book.
Cut out your inner pages and then using the Bind-it-All you can punch the holes in all your inner pages and covers. Use the black owires and bind the book together with the Bind-it-All machine.
