Bind it all...........

I promised to give you the scoop on this and I finally pulled it out, well actually it was sitting out on my desk but I was a little intimidated by it. It looks kinda scary and the little tag says do not remove unless in use to avoid any harm. So, I thought I might lose a finger or something. But I tried it and it is so fun. I seriously put a book together in minutes. I have found it is best to cover the coasters and then punch the bindings in them, they look nice and neat that way. So, I put these three little holiday books together and embellished them all very quickly for my bazaar this weekend (did I mention this to you all yet?)

Here is the first little album I put together. It has 3 coasters so 6 sides and I embellished it so that only the little photos need to be put into it now. I am thrilled with the way it turned out. I used a new pack of holiday paper from K&Co along with some of my SU colors to coordinate and a few stamps and rub ons. I am thinking that I will charge about $4 for these at the sale and I think they would make the cutest little holiday teacher/friend gifts. Plus I have a stack of coasters leftover from my big purchase!

I hope that you have enjoyed the photos, the binding system is easy and it looks really nice. I don't think that anyone would know that I put it together!

You finally got it out of the box and tried it! See, I told you it was easy! Now you're going to be addicted like me. Love your little book.

I have been waiting for FOREVER for you to let me know how this thing works. Geesh! So does it punch and bind or just bind?

I love this little book. I've not heard of this little machine, but the coaster books are too cute!! I want some.
